Lockdown is an uncomfortable way to start Spring 2020 but as the need for outdoor exercise became more urgent, Long Copse Lane was soon rediscovered for its welcoming environment and calming atmosphere. With the reduction of vehicle traffic, parents and children, cyclists and joggers felt safe to use the lane whilst maintaining social distancing.

Few residents would disagree that we live in a fabulous area. With stunning sea views in the South and an ancient wood in the North (which is accessible from Long Copse Lane). The sunny weather has helped to remind people of the value of these amenities

However, HBC activities on housing plans are restarting and once again the Save LCL team must actively participate in the democratic process, to try to protect the site from even more aggressive attitudes from government to meet housing targets.
