It’s official – we have been successful in getting Train Wood officially listed an ‘Asset of Community Value’ – only the second in Norwich.
We are also in talks with Norfolk county council about taking on a lease to run the land as a public amenity.
Friends of Train Wood and Marriott’s Way started the ACV* application process – which goes through the city council – back in April and are delighted that planners at city hall recently (August 14) confirmed that we as a group have been successful. It demonstrates just how much the public care about keeping this land open to all.
City hall have now notified the land owner – Norfolk County Council. We are already working with the county to take over the lease and run this important piece of Norwich’s heritage.
Thanks to the many committee members and campaigners who have given their time, we’ve got a healthy survey going on, have had a very successful few public events and plan an AGM soon. Watch this space!
