Arnhall Moss – the next 5 years

Arnhall Moss was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1992. It has a management plan which is reviewed every 5 years and the next 5 year plan is just in the process of being written. The plan sets all the things that could be done at the site over the next few years, so includes things like how to look after and improve the paths; how to manage the trees on the site and how the site could be used for community events.

We’d really like to know how you think the site should be managed in the next 5 years, so we’ve prepared an online consultation to gather your views. You can find the consultation here:

We’d really like your views on the future for Arnhall Moss, so please take the time to let us know your thoughts. The consultation closes on 6th December. Alternatively, if you’d like to know more about the site, or would like to get involved in helping to manage Arnhall Moss, please email
