    We've been asked for our 'wildfire management plan'
    (sounds like another stalling tactic to save them sending us money promised months ago...)

    Anyone familiar with such a thing? Template?

    If you get into bed with the devil you will have to learn to dance when the fiddle starts to play.

    burnt flailed or cultivated fire breaks ?

    seems easy enough .....suggesting stuff from the arm chair....:rolleyes:

    We have fire plans for our areas of common.
    We have a map with the areas of high risk (all of it!)
    map shows fire breaks - natural and cut
    access points for what type of vehicle
    water sources - where we may be able to fill a tanker
    then we add the following
    list of telephone numbers of who is available to fight a fire
    list of contact details of other interested parties

    About it.

    If fire looks controllable:

    1. Dial 999
    2. Run

    If fire is out of control:

    1. Run
    2. Dial 999

    Oh, forgot to say, with so much out of control vegetation on the common and restrictions on burning - a cup of tea may be in order before the first option above :whistle::whistle::whistle:

    Thanks.
    About what I'm expecting.

    Mind, a source warns me there's probably something along the lines of a 'wildlife plan' in there somewhere too.

    Is there one in the agreement? Who is your NE advisor? They will be able to help, even though the admin has been passed to the RPA.

    Can't read 164 page agreement without blood pressure rising to unsafe levels.
    NE advisor been off sick long time, and now moved elsewhere anyway, and I'd rather be left to get on with my life quietly until they find some nelms I prefer.
    So we're fudging it with help from various sources (I note the term fudging has mixed meanings now)

    And I realise my attitude to such a well founded and earnest gov scheme, for which I should be grateful and attentive, isn't quite as devotional as they'd like to imagine.
    What can I do? I've got demons enough without trying to make any sense of the comprehensive horse manure.
