The TCMAC is an official body set up by the London Borough of Wandsworth to advise it on its care of two commons: Tooting Bec Common and Tooting Graveney Common.
TCMAC is an annually elected body of 24 representing nearby residents together with local societies, groups and clubs. Everybody is welcome to our meetings
We are the official voice representing users of the Tooting Commons to help ensure that they are suitably cared for and protected. Do come and join us.
The Annual Public Meeting of the MAC will be held online at 7pm on 30 June 2020 at which new members will be appointed, by vote if there are more than 24 volunteers, and the direction set for 2020-21. Council staff will be present to answer questions. Find out more here.
The focus of our efforts is to:
- achieve a balance between recreation on the Commons and the protection and development of plant and animal life
- retain and enhance the Commons’ natural character
- promote public interest and participation in the protection and appreciation of the Commons
- raise awareness of the Commons and the work of TCMAC
The Tooting Commons Management Plan
In 2015 Wandsworth Council published their Tooting Common Management and Maintenance Plan 2015. This provides a lot of information about the Commons and the principles and procedures by which they are managed. Please note that this is a large file and so may take some time to load.
Part of our role is to ensure that Wandsworth Council and their contractors keep to these plans. More generally we advise the Council on the organisation of events on the Commons and on strategies, plans, developments and actions that affect the Commons from planning and cycling issues to traffic calming and nature conservation.
In all of this our aim is to preserve and protect the Commons whilst recognising the opportunities to upgrade the facilities to suit the needs of local residents.
