Appendix 4 - Scrub Grassland Map

Minutes:

·         The Head Ranger noted that scrub grassland grazing was a key component of maintaining a woodland pasture (does this make sense?). He noted that the City had partnered with Surrey Wildlife Trust to place cattle on the Common and that he had anecdotal feedback that the present breed had proved more effective than the previous breed in maintaining the pasture.

 

·         Members supported the gradual expansion of grazing areas on the Common from 2018/19.

 

·         A Member representing equine interests noted that she did not expect any conflict between horseriders/cattle using the Common.

 

·         A Member suggested that the City highlight its management of the Common via local media such as The Local.
