Hayes and Keston Get Back to Nature

Parks_hayescomm_448x336A swathe of commons and green space from Hayes to Keston Ponds are set to become designated a Local Nature Reserve.

The classification, which will cover Hayes and Keston Commons, Padmall Wood and Ravensbourne Open Space, will give additional legal protection from development and other unwelcome activities.

The new reserve will be known as “Ravensbourne Local Nature Reserve” and is due to come before the Renewal and Recreation PDS Committee and Portfolio Holder (Cllr. Julian Benington) on 13th October.
