Councillor Welcomes City’s New Nature Reserve

Cllr Lucy Nethsingha
(LD, Newnham)

A decision by Cambridge City Council to make Sheep’s Green and Coe Fen a Nature Reserve has been welcomed by Newnham ward councillor, Lucy Nethsingha.

The move follows a campaign by Newnham ward councillors and comes in addition to the management plan put in place for the area.

It demonstrates the city council’s commitment to protect and enhance the city’s green open spaces.

Cllr Nethsingha said: “This decision to give Sheep's Green and Coe Fen Local Nature Reserve status is welcome as the space forms a unique part of the character of Newnham and is a critical element of the green thread that runs through the city alongside the river.”
