  Common becomes a Local Nature Reserve
  At a gathering attended by around sixty people on the Common in July, the Mayor of Chelmsford formally announced that The Common had been granted the status of Local Nature Reserve. It now becomes one of around 200 'LNR's' declared in England since the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act was passed in 1949. These sites cover a wide range of interests and uses and section 15 of the Act defines a Nature Reserve as: 'land managed for the purpose of providing,under suitable conditions and control, special opportunities for the study of, and research into, matters relating to the flora and fauna of Great Britain and the physical conditions in which they live, and for the study of geological and physiographical features of special interest in the area, or of preserving flora, fauna or geologial or physiographical features of special interest in the area, or both these purposes'
