Working closely with Coed Cymru and Coed Cadw, the Bryn Arw Commoners Association secured the consent of the landowners, the graziers and all the relevant consultees. Permission to erect a fence on the common for 12 years was granted by the Welsh Planning Inspectorate on 10/5/19.
Ground preparations began in mid-July. The plant will take place over the planting season, November 2020 – March 2021.
With the assistance of the Woodland Trust, a botanical survey has been carried out on Bryn Arw. Transects were laid in Spring 2020, before ground preparations for planting on the common began. In this video, Alison Wheeler, an ecologist with over 30 years of field experience, outlines how the survey works.
With this baseline data, we will continue to record the flora on Bryn Arw annually.
