What are the Wimbledon & Putney Conservators?
To answer this question, please read the following extract from their website.
“The Commons are an area of calm and tranquility in the midst of the urban sprawls of Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston-upon-Thames in South West London. The Commons comprise about 460 hectares (1,140 acres) of countryside split between Wimbledon Common, Putney Heath and Putney Lower Common. Putney Lower Common is separated from the rest of the Common by about 1.5 miles. Approximately 360 hectares (900 acres) of the Commons are a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Special Area of Conservation (SAC)”.
“The Commons are administered by a Board of eight Conservators. Three of the Conservators are Government appointed, one each appointed by the Secretary of State for Defence, the Secretary of State for the Environment and the Home Secretary; five are elected every three years by the levy payers. Elections are normally held in January or February and everyone on the Local Government Electoral Roll living within the 3/4 mile of the Commons boundary may stand as a candidate”.
