The deadline for the public to have their say on the ways in which the Malvern Hills and Commons are managed has been extended.

The Malvern Hills Trust, who own and manage 1,200 hectares of this special landscape, have opened a public consultation on their Land Management Plan, a document which guides the charity’s land management work.

Jonathan Bills, conservation manager, said “Our land management work focusses 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 5-year land management plan, we’d like to hear people’s thoughts on what work they’d like to see us carry out.”

“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 5-year period.”
