A chance to get involved in plans for the Waveney Valley

Thursday 25 September, Beccles Public Hall, 5.30pm to 8.30pm

Waveney ValleyPeople living in, working in and visiting the Waveney Valley have the opportunity to find out what is going on in the area and get involved in future plans.

 The Broads Authority is holding an informal, interactive parish forum on Thursday 25 September at Beccles Public Hall in Smallgate to share information about its work and hear local people’s ideas and views.

The public are invited to drop in between 5pm and 8.30pm to meet Broads Authority Members and staff, including the local rangers.

There will be information and displays on everything from landscape and cultural history, tourism and recreation, wildlife and habitats, to planning matters, local access, navigation, volunteering opportunities and climate change adaptation.

Suffolk Police will be promoting their new Boatshield crime prevention initiative for boat owners and River Waveney Trust and the Waveney Valley Community Archaeology Group will be represented.

There will be a brief presentation at 7.30 pm with a chance to ask questions.

Ideas will be particularly welcome on improving land and waterside access and on local information for an exciting new Broads landscape interpretation project.

The Authority holds four parish forums a year, one in each of its ranger areas.
