Woods and Open Spaces
Common Wood was purchased by the Penn and Tylers Green Residents Society in 2002 following an extensive public campaign. With support from the Woodland Trust, the Chiltern Society and the Lottery Heritage Fund, the Society has been able to safeguard the wood for the benefit of the local community. It is committed to providing open access to all, and has set about an extensive management programme of both the natural habitat and the paths and access points throughout the wood.
Planning & Conservation
The Residents Society takes a keen interest in matters of planning and conservation within the local area. A specific sub-committee has been formed to make appropriate representation to the local authority in the comparatively few cases where an application is thought to damage the wider interests of the community.
