Neighbourhood Plan – Result of Referendum 11 March 2016

The Brundall Referendum on Friday 11th March resulted in the following outcome:

In answer to the question, “Do you want Broadland District Council and the Broads Authority to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Brundall area to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

873 voters said YES (92%) and 74 voters said NO (8%).

The turn-out was 29.5% of the total electorate.

The Chairman of the Working Group that prepared the Plan for Broadland District Council, Professor Martin Davies, said: “This result is fantastic.  It shows that the Plan accurately reflects public opinion in the village in respect of the six policies that make up the Plan.    It is good that, for the first time in history, the feelings of village residents will carry significant weight in the planning process.”

The policies concern:

– the preservation of important rural landscapes,

– improvements for pedestrians on The Street,

– increased recreational facilities,

– greater provision of housing-with-care for older people

– and of  nurseries for the under-fives,

– and a new network of footpaths and cycle-ways.

The Plan will remain in force for ten years.



On Friday 11th March, all residents of Brundall will be invited to vote FOR or AGAINST the six policies that emerged from the village consultation that took place in 2014-15.

The policies aim to achieve:

  • the protection of the pedestrian environment on The Street
  • the provision of more walking and cycling routes
  • the preservation of two important views in Brundall
  • the development of more recreational opportunities
  • the supply of housing with care for older people
  • the enhancement of Brundall’s pre-school facilities


Free copies of the Neighbourhood Plan which outlines these policies will be available from 35 The Street or from the Parish Council Office during February. Alternatively please email for an online copy. If you have no access online and have mobility and transport difficulties, please call 01603 712223 for a copy to be delivered to you.

If a majority of those who vote say YES to the Neighbourhood Plan, it will carry significant weight when the District Council considers future planning applications.

If you are on the Electoral Register for Brundall, you will receive a special voting card in good time before March 11th.

Venue: Brundall Memorial Hall between 7am and 10pm.


The outcome matters to YOU and YOUR FAMILY!!








Neighbourhood Plan new 6 week Public Consultation commencing on 22nd June 2015:

Please see the attached notice by clicking on the Link below:


PUBLIC NOTICE Brundall NDP publication (1)


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:

Specific services:

  • Funding application development and submission
  • Social and economic baseline research
  • Formal and informal consultation with the local community, businesses and local stakeholder groups
  • Identification of strengths and weaknesses
  • Development of a vision and objectives
  • Working collaboratively to produce policies and appraising compliance with strategic planning policies
  • Preparation and submission of the final suite of documents

The Parish Council

‘Neighbourhood Plans’ are a product of the Coalition Government’s localism policy.  The plans are being prepared by Parish and Town Councils all over the country.  Because Brundall’s Parish Council is committed to ensuring that our village remains a top-class place to live, it decided to play its part in the process.  Work has been going on throughout 2014: a working group made up of councillors and other residents of the village has met regularly, and two consultation days have been held at the Memorial Hall when residents of Brundall were invited to tell us what they thought.  As a result, eight draft policies have been drawn up:    subject to further discussion, the Neighbourhood Plan will argue for  . . .

. . . the preservation of a Green Corridor along the Lackford Run from Yarmouth Road in the North to the Strumpshaw boundary in the East;

. . . the provision of an improved and joined-up network of footpaths and cycle ways in the village;

. . . the protection and enhancement of Brundall’s important views: looking South from Braydeston Church and North East from the Memorial Hall;

. . . the protection and enhancement of boat building and marine related businesses in Brundall;

. . . the achievement of public access to the River Yare, ideally including a public slipway and green open space by the waterfront;

. . .  the introduction of measures to protect and improve the environmental quality of the Street for pedestrians and local businesses;

. . . the provision of enhanced recreation facilities in the village;

. . . the delivery of improved pre-school provision in the village, and the exploration of whether there is a need in the village for ‘housing with care’ facilities for old people.

Three meetings of the Working Group during the Autumn will lead to the preparation of a final text, and the views of residents are still being invited.     If you have an opinion, please tell the Clerk.

The Plan itself will not, of course, guarantee the resources necessary for the achievement of its policies, but, once in place (and if it has been approved next year in a referendum of  Brundall residents), it will provide a framework that will require Brundall Parish Council and Broadland District Council to take full account of it in pursuit of their own respective policies

Street Lights

Q. How can I report faulty street lights?

A. If you are aware of a faulty street light please do not hesitate to report it.  When reporting a fault it would be most helpful if you could provide as much of the following information as possible:

  • The name of the street in which the light is located
  • The number of the light – normally stencilled or stamped onto the lighting column
  • The property number or name nearest to the light
  • The type of fault eg not lighting, lighting at the wrong time, permanently on, damaged light, reduced intensity of the light etc

There are some 260 street lights in the village.  Some are the responsibility of the Parish Council and some are the responsibility of Norfolk County Council.  Listed below are the roads in which the street lights are the responsibility of Norfolk County Council and those that the Parish Council own. Please contact the relevant tel nos if you know of a fault.
