Members of a recently formed group opposing proposals for a new development on town centre land have held their first meeting.
Parish Fields Friends, which formed on Facebook, met with members of the public at United Reform Church in Diss on Monday night.
Around 45 people attended the meeting, where the future of Parish Fields, a greenfields site in Diss town centre was discussed.
Meeting organiser Tim Holt-Wilson said: “The aim of the meeting was to find out more about the concerns of participants, to identify potential campaign themes, to review the current situation regarding the speculative housing proposal by Scott Properties Ltd, and for Friends to indicate how they thought they could contribute to the campaign.
“A range of views were expressed during the discussions, with the strongest expression being a wish to keep the site as it is.”
