To date, only one SSSI management scheme has been served. This was served on Kings and Bakers Woods and Heaths site of special scientific interest, which is located in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. It was notified on 1 July 2004 and confirmed on 10 November 2004. No objections or representations were received. The scheme outlined the woodland management required in order for the SSSI to achieve favourable condition.

To date, no SSSI management notices have been served.
