Save our bridge – important announcement

The formal planning application for Boxted bridge has begun and the consultation period ends on 28th January.

This is a reminder to those of you who have not already written to object to the proposal to demolish Boxted bridge to do so now! As the responsibility for the bridge lies with both Babergh District Council and Essex County Council, objections and comments will need to be submitted to both organisations.

Further information on the type of comments and objections you can make is available on the Change.org petition update page at  https://www.change.org/p/essex-county-council-save-our-bridge?redirect=false
