The Surrey heathland project was set up to restore, enhance and manage heathlands across the county. It is funded by Surrey County Council and two other partners, one of which is us, Woking Borough Council. Together they form the Surrey Heathland Partnership.
In Woking the areas under management are Brookwood Heath, Prey Heath, Sheet's Heath and Smart's Heath. The project involves organised grazing and clearance of invasive scrub and bracken, as well as promoting an understanding of heathland and encouraging good management practice. This is essential to supporting the rare species that need heathland in order to survive.
