Lively discussions at the meeting on Juraslejas Meadows

Jurasleju plavas 6778

On 13th February a meeting in the Local History Museum was held for the experts of the Foundation “Latvian Fund for Nature” and the Nature Conservation Agency and the representatives of the Carnikava County municipality, owners of the Juraslejas Meadows’ land and other county residents and interested persons. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss issues regarding protection and management of the Juraslejas Meadows with landowners, as well as to inform about the proposal of the LDF to include the Juraslejas Meadows in the territory of the Nature Park “Piejura”.

The meeting was well attended and the potential development of Juraslejas Meadows was actively discussed. How to balance the interests of nature conservation and tourism? How to respect and take into account the landowners' intentions regarding their own property? Will the inclusion of the Juraslejas Meadows in the Nature Park “Piejura” benefit land owners, how will they be subject to the Natural Park restrictions? How is the territory included in the protected area and what funds can be used for the restoration and management of the biologically valuable grassland?

We would like to thank the visitors of the meeting who expressed their opinions. This allowed to get acquainted with the different views of the landowners regarding the management of their plots in the future and to conclude that adding the Juraslejas Meadows to the Nature Park will not be a quick and unanimous decision. In order to continue to jointly plan the future of this territory, it was decided to go in the spring on a field visit together with environmental experts to survey the Juraslejas Meadows to submit the first version of the nature protection plane for public discussion already in May 2019.

You can ask the topical questions about the Juraslejas Meadows to the developers of the new nature conservation plan for the Nature Park “Piejura”: Foundation “Latvian Fund for Nature”, Ilze Priedniece, Head of the Plan Development, e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
