RESIDENTS have less than two weeks to share their thoughts on the future management of the Malvern Hills and commons.

Malvern Hills Conservators are currently creating a new land management plan to guide their work over the next five years, and they want to hear the public's views.

Postcards for people to note down their thoughts and send them back to the Conservators are available from venues around the hills, including Welland Post Office, the Old Bush, Callow End, the Swan inn, Newland, Colwall Post Office, the Wyche Innovation Centre and the Elim Café, West Malvern.

They are also available at the Conservators' office in Great Malvern and the Malvern and Ledbury tourist information centres. But hurry - the deadline for the consultation is Wednesday, April 30.

Beck Baker, the deputy conservation officer, said: "We have received a good number of replies but the more we know which features of the hills and commons are important to people, and what the main issues are, the better informed we will be to write the plan."
