Long Melford Parish Council is responsible for Melford Country Park and Melford Railway Walk (both of which are designated Local Nature Reserves leased from Suffolk County Council), and the Long Melford Cemetery situated around the Holy Trinity Church.
The Parish Council also provides a number of the services that are not delivered by either the County Council or District Council. Examples are some (but not all) of the village’s street lighting, the Old School Car Park (leased from the Hyde Parker Estate), and the toilet facilities situated in the Melford Country Park LNR and at the top of Melford Green.
Please note that the allotments located in the village are owned and controlled by the Hyde Parker Estate, and not the Parish Council. Enquiries regarding the allotments should be directed to their manager, Mr Clive Albon, who can be contacted on Tel. 01787 371413.
