Stoke Common Management Plan, Public Consultation and Grant Application

Report of the Superintendent of Burnham Beeches and The Commons.


N.B.: Full, colour copies of the Management Plan itself have been separately circulated to all Members and are available on request.


The Committee considered a report of the Superintendent of The Commons relative to the Stoke Common Management Plan, Public Consultation and Grant Application.


The Superintendent wished to place on record his thanks to the management plan development team whose work he applauded. He went on to report that Natural England had made an early comment on the Plan stating that it was fantastic and that they wished that others would adopt the same approach to this work. 


The Chairman noted, within the Management Plan, that there had been no small mammal survey of the Common and questioned whether this had ever been carried out previously. The Conservation Officer reported that various other wildlife surveys have been carried out and that they would look to include a small mammal survey going forward.


RESOLVED – That, Members approve the final draft plan so that it can then be submitted to Natural England for ratification.
