Suffolk Coast and Heaths Working Party
On 7 February 2023 a team of volunteers from Suffolk Coast ahd Heaths will be working on the Common. They will be continuing the work they started last year clearing the bank near the steps leading from the Common to Black Slough in compartment 9.
Westleton Common – Fire Breaks
During the week beginning 2nd February 2023 contractors will be cutting new fire breaks on the North Common.
We feel it is important to do this work before we run into another long very hot dry spell as we had 2022.
The main areas to protect are near the houses on Bakers Lane and the large area of heather in Compartment 1 at the head of the path from Bakers Lane.

A copy of this plan is available in the Foyer of Westleton Village Hall and can also be read on the Westleton website at (click) Management-Plan-FINAL-VERSION-220621.pdf (onesuffolk.net).
If anyone has any questions or concerns, they can contact any member of the Advisory Group, names and contact details can also be found on the website (click) About Us » Westleton (onesuffolk.net).
We will then organise a meeting and guided walk on the common, probably in September 2022, to discuss the proposals.
