Erewash Borough Council is proud to announce that Trent Meadows in Long Eaton has been granted Local Nature Reserve (LNR) status. The wildlife hotspot site will be known as the Trent Meadows Local Nature Reserve.
Erewash Borough Council, who have been working closely with the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, will add the site to its official nature reserves in the borough. The area is a valuable open space for the local community, visitors and nature conservation.
Trent Meadows is in a wildlife-rich area alongside the River Trent, Attenborough Nature Reserve and a number of other local wildlife sites, and by declaring it an LNR, this will help protect the site for nature and for the enjoyment of visitors.
Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, Councillor Mike Wallis, says:
“It is absolutely fantastic news for Erewash that Trent Meadows has been approved with Local Nature Reserve status. We already have nine local nature reserves in the borough and it’s great to make Trent Meadows number 10! This shows the council’s commitment to the environment by maintaining important local nature sites.”
