Projects & works

Each year, a number of improvement projects are carried out on the Commons in line with the long-term Management Plan. These may be funded from the Borough Council precept but are more often supported by grants and donations from the Friends of the Commons and other bodies.


Projects completed in 2020 include:

  • Wetland scrapes at Bulls Hollow
  • A new pond at the Marlpits in Rusthall
  • Holly scrub clearance in Happy Valley
