Have your say

As the councillor who withdrew the area from development and highlighted the need for long term protection, I can reassure Mrs Bruce, her LARA colleagues and the public that the River Lane pitches at Lynnsport will remain as sports fields and community space and be protected as such as stated in my amendment to council that was supported and is now official borough council policy.

I should stress however, that the amendment referred to the need to protect the River Lane area and did not specify nor promise a Fields in Trust Dedication. The most appropriate method of protection will be implemented and the chosen option will offer the same long term level of protection as Fields in Trust, which in itself remains a possibility.

Deputy Leader of West Norfolk Council
