New nature reserve plan

COUNCILLORS are set to give the go-ahead for a new nature reserve for the borough on Wednesday.

At a meeting of Erewash Borough Council’s executive, members will read a report that recommends that the Manor Farm open space in Long Eaton should become a nature reserve.

The report states that the site is within the River Erewash floodplain and so is not suitable for housing and that more than half of residents asked in a consultation on green spaces said they wanted to see more created in Erewash.
