Norfolk Biodiversity Awards 2015

Brundall Parish Council is pleased and proud to announce it has been awarded a top honour for its recent acquisition and development of two parcels of land – Cremer’s Meadow and the Countryside Park. It was awarded the honours due to its community efforts to conserve biodiversity and its enthusiasm plus systematic approach taken to develop the green infrastructure within the village. Cremer’s Meadow has its own Friends group to enhance and develop the site for everyone to enjoy in years to come. The Countryside Park which also has a Friends group, boasts an allotment site, a new Woodland bearing native species and areas to walk through including Low Farm Wood, situated to the North of Postwick Lane. The Council has been successful in setting up a new parkrun facility for all which complements nature with health.

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.
