News!
Sevenoaks Greensand Commons Project
Sevenoaks District Council, working with Kent Wildlife Trust and other local partners, has received a confirmed National Lottery grant of £483,600 for the Sevenoaks Greensand Commons heritage project. This will be a four year project covering the 300ha of Commons that fall under SDC`s management and will include Seal Chart, Fawke Common and Bitchet Common in Seal Parish. Including match funding and volunteer time the project will have a value of £685,274 and aims to restore the landscape, social and natural heritage of the Commons, improve footpaths, bridleways and signage. There will be opportunities for people to find out and share more about the history and wildlife of the Commons and to take a lead role in the on-going management of their conservation and promotion of their heritage.
A project manager and community education and conservation managers will be recruited and it is expected that the project will start this coming autumn. More information will become available on the Kent Wildlife Trust website at https://www.kentwildlifetrust.org.uk/get-involved/our-projects/sevenoaks-greensand-commons
Thanks must go to the very many people locally who contributed so positively to the consultation walks and surveys carried out as part of the successful bid. There was a strong groundswell of support for the project that enabled the project development officer to put together a comprehensive proposal that can be effectively delivered and improved upon with the continued involvement of so many local people.
