Horndean Parish Council (HPC) has some interesting projects happening in the area like the exciting refurbishment of the playgrounds within the area due to start soon and lots of other enterprising schemes which will benefit the Community of Horndean.
Councillors are also pro-active on improving the environment making more use of social media and making the community aware of our beautiful woodlands and conservation areas available for everyone to enjoy.
People interested in standing for Council will be expected to engage with the Community and attend Council meetings, which usually take place on a Monday evening, be part of various committees within the Council, helping to put forward the views of the Parish on Planning and Environmental issues. This can be both a rewarding and interesting work.

Cattle are currently grazing on Hazelton Common and Catherington Down, this is an important management technique used on our sites. We aim to manage grazing responsibly in order to avoid further loss of rare bird, reptile and plant species and when grazing we take into consideration the specific characteristics of each site.
Hazelton Common is an important site as around 20 per cent of lowland heathland in the world is located in Britain. It is estimated that over 80 per cent of Britain's lowland hetath has disappeared since 1800. Grazing of domestic animals has helped shape lowland heath by preventing the natural succession towards woodland so is the preferred management technique used on our site.
Catherington Down is an area of unimproved calcareous grassland that contains a diverse range of chalk grassland flora. Grazing is providing a sward composition that benefits desired species. Grazing also limits the encroachment from scrub and tree species.
