Grazing permits

If you want to graze cattle on our open spaces, you must register them with us.

The 2020 grazing season opens on 1 April – the deadline to apply for a grazing permit was 1 March.

The animals must belong to you, and they must all be attested and have a movement licence.

Grazing costs £65 per cow. This is reduced to £40 per cow for herds of 10 or more cows. We will contact you to arrange payment on receipt of your registration form.

Cattle can be grazed on Coe Fen, Coldham’s Common, Midsummer Common, Sheep’s Green, and Stourbridge Common.

Common land grazing must now be linked to your existing holding as an additional holding.
