Stour Valley Action Group


The Stour Valley Action Group was formed in April 2001 to contest the original planning application to build The John Constable Countryside and Heritage Centreat the site of redundant greenhouses on London Road,Great Horkesley. Having deemed all previous applications as inappropriate,and having defeated them, our role now is to monitor future plans for the same site.

The committee was re-elected following an open meeting on 3rd July 2014. With a membership of more than 700 people, the SVAG committee will take care to ensure that the views of the local community are taken into account as each new application arises.

Membership is open to all. We particularly welcome members living in the villages of Great and Little Horkesley, Nayland and Boxted, who live closest to the site. However, any new developments will also be of concern to those who live in Langham, Leavenheath, Stoke-by-Nayland, Higham, Wissington, Wormingford, West Bergholt, Eight Ash Green and other surrounding villages.

Anyone else, anywhere, who is concerned about the future of this landscape is welcome to join.
