The Council has adopted a detailed Management Plan for the Common and the implementation of this plan has resulted over the last few years in the recovery of all seven ponds, the steady return of heather and gorse to the heathland areas and a magnificent annual display of wild flowers and associated butterflies in the chalk meadow.

Copies of the Management Plan, which gives a full picture of the Commons’ history, topography with lists of species and the Councils management aims are available here.
