Wealden District Council

Wilmington and Monken Pyn Commons

Wilmington and Monken Pyn are two separate commons which are registered and protected. It is the Council's aim to protect the unique environment for future generations.

With this aim in mind the Council has formed a Management Plan to protect and enhance these areas of land, protecting the flora and fauna, and allowing Registered Commoners to exercise their rights to use the land should they wish as well as allowing the general public to enjoy the land.

A Management Committee has been formed to discuss issues relating to these commons and to see that the management plan is regulated and maintained.

The Management Committee is formed of persons who have a direct interest in the land, such as owners, Commoners, Parish Council representation, adjoining land owners and conservation bodies such as the Sussex Wildlife Trust, who work together to enhance this important habitat.
