Please note: Due to current national conditions, the leaflets advertising the Open Zoom Meeting could not be delivered, therefore the meeting has been cancelled - hopefully it can be held later in the year.
Reydon Parish Council, supported by Wangford Parish Council, has begun work to designate two key routes around the village as Quiet Lanes. A quiet lane is a single track lane used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders as well as vehicles. Quiet Lane signs encourage all users to “expect and respect” others who may be walking, cycling or riding along these lanes.
Our proposed lanes can be seen on the map below. They are:
- Rissemere Lane East and part of Wood Farm Lane – the main walking and cycling route from the village to Reydon Wood.
- Mardle Road (which is shared with Wangford) – the route from the Hen Reedbeds to the Wangford Road, almost opposite the other end of the track leading to Reydon Wood.
Together with the river walls, these lanes form a key part of a circular route linking Reydon (and Southwold) with two of the most important nature reserves in our parish. Over 95% of residents responding to the survey for the Reydon Neighbourhood Plan identified these places as among the most valued areas of our local countryside. There was strong support for improving walking and cycling access around the village. This aim is a Parish Council Action in our plan.
But to take the next steps to designate Rissemere Lane East/ Wood Farm Lane and Mardle Road as Quiet Lanes, we need to consult the community on this specific proposal.
