Oxhey Woods Greenspace Action Plan (GAP) Public Consultation

Hertfordshire County Council's Countryside Management Service is currently working with Three Rivers District Council to develop a new Greenspace Action Plan (GAP) for Oxhey Woods. GAPs are essentially map-based management plans that provide focus and direction for the running and improvement of open spaces. They provide a clear, logical process to determine the activities that should take place over a stated period of time to achieve the objectives for the site. The completed document will inform the management actions to be undertaken over the next five years.

Please view the draft copy of the GAP here.

We would welcome any comments you may have, or your thoughts on the future management of Oxhey Woods. Should you have any comments then please contact Michael Poole using the email address The closing date for comments on the draft GAP is 15th September 2022

The Biodiversity opportunities Audit & alternative grassland management public consultation

Earlier this year, Three Rivers District Council agreed a Biodiversity Opportunities Audit which aims to identify opportunities for wildlife to benefit throughout the District and the Audit can be viewed HERE. Within the Audit many opportunities are outlined including tree planting, wetland creation and hedge restoration. Another key element of this is grassland management, the way the Council manages its grass has been reviewed, developed and improved for the benefit of our local wildlife and the community (Alternative Grassland management).

We welcome you to have your say and let us know your thoughts on both the Biodiversity Opportunities Audit and the Alternative Grassland Management which has commenced this year.
