This page lists the meetings for Ashtead Common Consultative Group.
The City of London protects
and manages, by charitable trust, almost 11,000 acres of open
spaces within and around the capital for the benefit of local
communities and visitors. Ashtead Common, part of the seven ‘City
Commons’, is a 500 acre ancient wooded common with over
2,300 ancient oak pollards located in north-east Surrey. The site
has been part of the Epsom and Ashtead Commons Site of Special Scientific Interest since
1955 due to its rich community of breeding birds. It has also been
Nature Reserve since 1995 due to the decaying wood of
ancient trees and the rare invertebrates that live in it. The site
includes two ancient Scheduled Monuments - a Roman villa and a
triangular earthwork. The Ashtead Common Consultative Committee
provides a forum for local residents and users to comment upon the
management of the Common.
