Greenham and Crookham Commons Management Plan 2009-2014: Ponds management
The ponds on the common form an incredibly important contribution to the diversity of wildlife on the common. The pond complex is made up of over 70 permanent and seasonal ponds and pools, from large 'lake size' to small vehicle ruts and shallow scrapes. The pond wildlife includes the great crested newt (a Biodiversity Action Plan species) and the recently introduced startfruit, as well as supporting 21 dragonfly and damselfly species. As part of West Berkshire Council's Higher Level Stewardship, a Pond Management Plan will be produced to cover the following main elements.

The details of this plan will be included here on its completion, which is expected to be during 2012.
