History

This Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) was established in 2019. The purpose of this SANG is to avoid increased recreational pressure on the Wealdon Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA) from new residential development by providing an alternative recreation area that offers a similar experience to the SPA.

The land was formerly two agricultural fields, one arable and the other pasture. Following establishment of the SANG the site will be managed in accordance with a SANG management plan, for the benefit of people and wildlife.

Development

Management by the Land Trust will seek to enhance the biodiversity and recreational value of the new site for visitors.
