A NEW STRATEGIC PLAN FOR THE COMMON
One of the first priorities of the Southampton Common Forum has been to draw up a new Strategic Plan for The Common to replace the existing and outdated management plan which dates from the 1990s and was centred on ecological considerations, rather to the neglect of human users.
The final draft, published in April 2018 incorporates public feedback from the “early view” consultation and will be the subject to a formal consultation by Council in mid 2018.
The final adopted Strategic Plan will be supported by a number of detailed management plans covering different areas of The Common’s function. The initial proposed list contains the following 6 sub plans:
In addition, we have identified 5 “hot topics” arising from this plan. These are:
SCF will be working with Council during 2018 to explore these “hot topics” and develop the detail plans. We are seeking volunteers with specific interest and expertise in any of these areas to assist us. Please contact us if you are interested in helping with this very important project.
