Our Community news – We have been asked to share this good news – it shows that Waverley sometimes pleases our residents. Do you have a good news story?
“The ongoing conservation work being carried out on the Summerlands estate, specifically on the pond located there and in Slip of Wood, is fantastic!
This work is being led by Waverley Borough Councils’ Countryside rangers who liaise with the Summerlands Estate Residents Association (SERA).
The rangers have been very supportive of SERA’s desire to have the estate’s green areas sympathetically managed.
During the period December 2018 to February 2019 a total of nine conservation events will have taken place, one to clear bankside growth and install a footpath around the pond and eight to clear the understory in Slip of Wood.
The dramatic difference made to the overall appearance of Slip of Wood and to the accessibility of the pond and its information board has resulted in an application being made, by Waverley Borough Council, for Green Flag recognition of the green areas on the estate (similar to the Blue Flag awards for clean beaches).
This application is supported by a Summerlands Estate management plan for the period 2018 – 2027 which was jointly produced recently by the countryside ranger and SERA and then accepted by WBC who have indicated that it will be implemented. The outcome of the award application will be known in the summer.
By then it is hoped that a number of green areas on the estate will have been converted to wild flower meadows with the help of estate residents.
