New Councillor Surgeries for 2018

Councillor Surgeries

Following a number of requests from residents who attended our monthly meetings the Parish Council has decided to run a monthly surgery to see if this can improve resident to Councillor communication.

There are 4 confirmed dates as stated below and the surgeries will be held at the Parish Council office (red door to the right hand side and rear of the Memorial Hall) on a Saturday morning between 10am and 12pm:

Saturday January 20th

Saturday February 17th

Saturday March 10th

Saturday April 21st

If the surgeries are well attended and following a review it is likely these will be a regular feature of Council life. We will be issuing individual Council email addresses for each Councillor and more information on the website and in the Memorial Hall Foyer to allow residents to get to know who their Councillors are.

On this Parish Council website there is an option to subscribe to each update put on the website so residents can be alerted via their email to any new items being published. The website also contains the monthly Agenda and Minutes. We also have a Face book page which contains alerts to village issues, events and even utility alerts where possible.

Neighbourhood Plan – Pre Submission Draft Consultation

Brundall Parish Council initiated the Neighbourhood Plan along with a working party made up of community minded individuals. Without the expertise  of Ingham & Pinnock Consultants, funded by the Community Development Foundation (Locality) to help us to prepare this draft of our Brundall Neighbourhood Plan, we are in no doubt that the process would have been infinitely more difficult.

Brundall is located approximately 7 miles east of Norwich and to the north of the River Yare. The village abuts Surlingham Broad and part of the parish falls within Norfolk Broads National Park. The village has a population of approximately 4,000 residents, is home to a number of number of shops and services and contains a high concentration of employment in the boating and marine sector. It has two railways stations with good links to Norwich and Great Yarmouth and is surrounded by exceptional countryside.

The preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan will enable the local community to establish policy solutions for issues within the Parish over the next ten years and help to ensure that future changes reflect local needs and aspirations.

Pre-submission consultation:

Thank you for visiting this Brundall Parish Neighbourhood Plan page.  The Pre-Submission Draft Neighbourhood Plan consultation period runs from 5th December to 30th January 2015.  Please follow the link below to review the below document and tell us what you think about the emerging Neighbourhood Plan for the village:

http://www.inghampinnock.com/brundall-neighbourhood-plan/

  • Social and economic baseline research
