Local Nature Reserve

Eastwood Farm was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in January 2008, following it’s use as a landfill site since the early seventies. 

Local authorities can create local nature reserves (LNRs). As a manager of an LNR they need to care for and protect its natural features. They must also make it accessible for any visitors. However, it isn’t a formal requirement that an LNR is open to the public 

The authorites can create byelaws to facilitate the management of the land. More information on LNRs generally can be found here.
