Oxford City Council, encouraged and supported by Natural England, has embarked on the development of a new management plan for Shotover Hill Country Park and has engaged consultants – Footprint Ecology – to prepare this.
The Hill is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) meaning it is of national importance for nature conservation but the site is not managed just for wildlife, and there are many other interests; it is a much-loved and visited location.
The City Council wants to accommodate these interests as part of their management of the Country Park, as well as paying full and proper regard to the conservation value.
There has been a period of consultation with the Shotover Users’ Forum and a set of management objectives has been drawn together.
This consultation has now closed.
