The long-established BCA Environment Group has a wide remit which includes aircraft noise, traffic volumes, public transport, open spaces and planning applications. The group meets monthly at Rose House and meetings are open to all members of the BCA. The BCA also supports the Friends of Barnes Common, and the volunteers who maintain the Leg o’ Mutton reservoir nature reserve. You can find more information about the local environment below.
