There is a new better designed consultation out on the management plan for Coldham’s Common. Under pressure from the Friends and others, City Council have agreed to re-run the consultation exercise. This also we hope represents change from the City towards the users of the common.
There are still some issues we have :
- the idea and expense of grazing on the Barnwell Road end is still there ;
- the extent of illegal fencing,maintained at public expense, which cut off substantial sections of the common, are not mentioned;
- and the sorry state of access points, especially from the Abbey, are not highlighted.
We will be taking these up in the consultation.
Please look through the online consultation. The link is :
Or more quickly email your views to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject as ‘Coldham’s Common management plan’
We have paper copies if you have friends you know would prefer one.
