We are conducting a campaign to remind those who forget to clear up after their dog, to do so. Thanks to all those responsible dog owners (who are the majority) who do clear up. If you see someone failing perhaps the offer of a bag may help.
Martlesham Common is the parish’s first Local Nature Reserve. The new designation recognises the importance of the habitats and species on this remaining pocket of heathland that the Parish Council in partnership with the Greenways Project has been managing for wildlife. The site is a mosaic of woodland, acid grassland and expanding areas of heather which is a marvellous place for people to get close to and enjoy nature on their doorstep.
Thanks go to Suffolk Coastal District Council’s legal department for transferring the legal power to the Parish Council enabling it to go ahead with the designation which was done in liaison with Natural England.
This new designation for the common will be celebrated later on this year at the site’s Open Day on Saturday 1st September. More details on the celebrations to come…
