In 1968 the Common was purchased by Surrey County Council from Lord Onslow for £1 an acre. Approximately 1400 acres are now managed by Surrey Wildlife Trust who employ a full time ranger complete with a distinctive vehicle.
Round Pond Woods and Chobham Place Woods are owned and managed by Surrey Heath Borough Council. The Borough have created a path through Chobham Place Woods to improve access for wheelchairs and prams.
