People in North Herts are being asked for their views on how the recreational areas at Walsworth Common in Hitchin should be developed.

The 9.6 hectare Common is owned by North Herts District Council (NHDC).

Countryside Management Service (CMS) is working on behalf of NHDC, who are holding a public consultation to establish what enhancements people would like to see.

Key proposals include the recreational facilities, the replacement of the bridge and signage, improvements to the river and habitat for wildlife and access to and from the Common.
