A new community space and environmentally-friendly garden is to be developed in South Lopham after Breckland Council agreed to transfer a parcel of land to the parish council.

The land, on Norton Road, will be used by the parish council to create a new space for local residents to enjoy.

The area offers an area of green space where residents can come together, connect, and enjoy nature in a sustainable way. The South Lopham Parish Council plans to transform the space into an environmentally friendly garden that can be enjoyed by everyone in the community.

Cllr Marion Chapman-Allen, ward member for Guiltcross added: "It is great to see this land being transferred back to South Lopham. The new plans will give residents an area to come together and enjoy nature."
