Rallying call as Malvern Hills and Commons future survey nears its deadline

RESIDENTS have just a couple of days left to have their say on the managing of the Malvern Hills and Commons.

The Malvern Hills Trust, which owns and manage 1,200 hectares of this special landscape, has opened a public consultation on its Land Management Plan.

The document which guides the charity’s land management work.

The public are being asked to complete the consultation and tell the Trust which access or conservation projects they’d like to see happen in this landscape over the next five years.

Jonathan Bills, Conservation Manager said “Our land management work focuses on the conservation of this landscape, its natural and cultural heritage, and public access so we’d like to hear what people think is important to them.

“The current plan, covers the period from 2016 to 2021 and as we prepare our new five-year Land Management Plan, we’d like to hear people’s thoughts on what work they’d like to see us carry out.”

This important document details the framework in which the Trust’s work sits, describes the land they care for, evaluates what’s important, identifies objectives and programmes the work necessary to achieve those objectives.

Mr Bills added: “We’re particularly interested in hearing the public’s thoughts on the Land Management Plan document, the land management that has been delivered during the life of the current plan and the possible improvements for the next five-year period.”

The deadline for those wishing to submit their comments by completing the short questionnaire is the Monday, August 31.

The questionnaire and further information can be found on the Trust’s website:
