Development Management Committee

The SNC’s Development Management Committee, which decides on planning applications made to SNC, are meeting at Swan House in Long Stratton on 3rd February from 10 a.m. Item 2 on the agenda is the 10 house development on Church Road. The agenda and full documentation for the meeting is to be found here on the SNC site. An abbreviated version including the agenda, preamble and the Wreningham relevant section is here: extract.

The application has undergone a few revisions since it was presented to the Parish Council – specifically some adjustments to site & house characteristics and the introduction of a TROD along the front of the site. You can inspect these changes via a search for the application (using reference 2015/2449) here.

The Parish Council will have representatives at this meeting to underline the rationale for its rejection of this planning application at its November meeting – see Minutes 30 Nov 2015.

Norfolk Wildlife Trust are grazing sheep adjacent to Long’s Wood for a few weeks. Please keep dogs on leads when in the area.
In general, all dog walkers will know that dogs must be kept under control in the woods from February and throughout the Spring to encourage and protect nesting birds and other wildlife.
Horseriding: Only riders with permission can use the path around the wood. Please contact Rachael on 07742 368246 for more information.

Although PCSO Sore regularly reports that Wreningham is a low crime area we are not without some incidents. The Police system has a record of three crimes in November and December:

  • TFMV (Theft from Motor Vehicle), 31/12/15 – 02/01/16. Items taken from an insecure (unlocked) parked and unattended car parked on village hall car park.
  • Theft Other, 21/11/15 – 01/12/15.  Theft of heating oil from a property on Mill Lane.
  • Theft Other, 10/01/16 – 11/01/16. Theft of large quantity of solar panes from farm on Wymondham Rd that were insecurely stored awaiting installation.

This is just a reminder to stay alert, secure your house, car and belongings to minimise the risk of an opportunist theft.  PCSO Sore is always available to help advise on steps which you might take.

Making small changes to a home can significantly improve the health and well-being and quality of life of people living with dementia and their carers. Home adaptations can enable people to live independently for longer, to continue to do things they enjoy and can reduce or delay the need for residential care or hospital admissions.

South Norfolk Council and South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are providing grants of up to £1000 to make adaptations and improvements to the home. Their poster is here Forget-me-not
