The Buckingham Fields Scrutiny Task Group was set up in December 2006 following the decision to grant village green status to public land at Buckingham Fields, (now Hampton Common). The investigation was in response to local people who believed that there was a need for explanations about the decision to enclose public land within a 3.5m fence, and an opportunity for lessons to be learned about the decision-making process in order to improve it for the future.
Hampton Common is described in the plan as an important asset for local people and visitors, with the Council aspiring to manage and maintain the Common to the highest standards.The plan is based on an audit of the Common using Government guidance and a common sense approach to achieve the Council's objectives.
