Behind the Scenes

The Trustees of Wimbledon and Putney Commons, the Conservators, are keen to make public more information about what goes on behind the scenes of the running of the Commons.

At their meeting in June 2018, the Conservators therefore undertook to publish the following information:

  • the quarterly number of incidents dealt with by the Mounted Keepers including breaches of the Byelaws;
  • volunteer hours worked across the Commons;
  • dates and locations when Conservators and/or senior staff make formal presentations to Residents’ Associations or other Groups/Societies 
  • visitor feedback (respecting restrictions regarding disclosure of personal information);
  • donations (respecting the right of donors to remain anonymous);
  • numbers of formal complaints received;
  • other information that is deemed appropriate from time to time.
