An extra ordinary Parish Council meeting was held on Tuesday 22nd June to discuss a proposal received asking if the PC would support in principle, the proposition to be part of a syndicate of organisations, to secure and preserve a site known as Houlders Meadow, in Boxford as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) of exceptional ecological value.

Houlders Meadow Outline Proposal

Draft Parish Council Meeting Minutes

Parish Councillors all voted in favour to support the idea in principle and agreed to discuss further once the conversations had been held with relevant government department. If following these discussions, it looked possible that the site could be secured, a full proposal with syndicate formation and details on how it would be managed and funded would then be provided. Once further information is available the Parish Council will look to hold a village meeting to get input from the village and to make this a community project.
