Fire Beacon Hill, consultation on future management.

A chance to find out about the current and future manageemnt of  the site for long term wildlife conservation.
The RSPB, currently managing Fire Beacon Hill on behalf of Sidmouth Town Council, would like to know what this Local Nature Reserve means to you, and invites your views on current grazing and other management and possible options for the future. In any change, all existing access for people and horses will be maintained.
As the Local Nature Reserve adjoins land owned and managed by the Woodland Trust and Forestry Commission, they and other organisations including East Devon AONB will also be consulted.
Our aim is to continue and improve management and to secure long term conservation of this important site. We want to enable more effective conservation of heathland and other habitats to benefit wildlife and enhance people’s enjoyment of this valued open space. 

To find out about possible options for future management and to give your views, please come to our on-site open days
