Westfield Common is a Site of Nature Conservation Importance (SNCI) comprised of wet woodland, drains and ponds. The area is rich in biodiversity and supports a population of Great Crested Newts, a rare aquatic species.
In 2014 Surrey Wildlife Trust, in partnership with Woking Borough Council and local residents, produced the Westfield Common Management plan to improve the area and help identify management priorities. The plan was reviewed in July 2017, to provide up to date information. The final plan, a summary and the review can be found below:

- Westfield Common Management Plan Summary
- Westfield Common Management Plan Review
Surrey Wildlife Trust are managing the implementation of the plan on behalf of the Council. This will involve creating a Friends of Westfield Common group and holding practical volunteer days.
