History

This Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) was established in 2022-3. The purpose of this and other local SANGs is to avoid increased recreational pressure on the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA) from new residential development by providing alternative recreation areas that offer a similar experience to the SPA.

Following establishment of the SANG the site is being managed in accordance with a SANG management plan, for the benefit of people and wildlife.

Development

The Land Trust took over responsibility for Sunningdale Park in November 2023. Current and future management seeks to enhance the recreational and biodiversity value of the site.
