South Norfolk Council (SNC) is re-consulting on a draft Guidelines for Recreation Provision in New Residential Developments Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

The draft SPD outlines the Council’s agreed policy on the adoption and maintenance of open spaces and play areas in new developments.  From the date of adoption of the SPD the Council will not take on responsibility for such areas. This will fall to either Parish/Town Councils or to a designated Management Company.  The draft SPD contains guidelines for Parish and Town Councils thinking of taking on this responsibility. We would appreciate your views.

The draft SPD will be subject to public consultation for a four-week period from Friday 4th May to 5pm on Tuesday 5th June.  Comments are invited on any aspect of the SPD but please make it clear as to which section/paragraph number(s) the comments relate. The Council’s preferred method for receiving comments is via email to LP@s-norfolk.gov.uk.  Comments can also be sent by post to: Interim Joint Spatial Planning Manager, South Norfolk Council, South Norfolk House, Cygnet Court, Long Stratton, Norfolk, NR15 2XE.

Full details are available on the Council’s website at https://www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/residents/have-your-say/consultations .

Update June 2017

Update on Community Governance Review

Ward level changes have been agreed and will be implemented in 2019. For Wreningham this means that we will no longer be in the Newton Flotman Ward. A new Ward “Mulbarton & Stoke Holy Cross” will be created and which will comprise the parishes of Ashwellthorpe, Bracon Ash, East Carleton, Flordon, Ketteringham, Mulbarton, Stoke Holy Cross, Swardeston, and Wreningham. See this map https://www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/sites/default/files/SNC_Parishes_By_District_Wards_Mulbarton%20%26%20Stoke%20Holy%20Cross.pdf

At the parish level, South Norfolk’s 2017 Community Governance Review continues apace with public consultation ending on 12 July 2017. The review team’s schedule is:

  • 31 August – publish its draft proposals

  • 31 August to 27 October – consultation

  • February 2018 – final recommendations

  • May 2019 – Implementation.

Wreningham Parish Council have discussed the implications of the Review and have agreed that Wreningham should remain as a distinct and separate parish largely defined by its current boundaries. It was accepted that some adjustments might made to make the boundary reflect modern geography e.g. run the northern boundary along the B1135 (Wymondham Road) instead of across fields. The map illustrates what this might look like if roads around the parish were considered as boundaries, where possible:

Recent discussions with the Chair and Vice-chair of Ashwellthorpe & Fundenhall PC considered that this review may recommend significant changes, such as a merger of the two parishes. However, whilst improved co-operation between the two PCs might be helpful in a few areas, any proposal to merge the parishes would be resisted by both councils. This is because no benefit could be identified from such a merger, not least that the parishioners in each parish would find their representation at PC level effectively halved.

March 25, 2017:

The Terms of Reference for the Governance Review have been published and they are now collecting evidence. Therefore, they have asked us to post a link to the survey for residents to provide their views on their Parish and its Parish Council. We encourage you to use this link. Please see here.

The Parish Council is asked to complete a more detailed survey. The Parish Council’s response to the survey would be improved if informed by your input. So please look at the questions here and send your comments to the Clerk at clerk.wpc@gmail.com. Thank you.

March 8, 2017:

The chair of the Parish Council has written about the Review being undertaken by South Norfolk to examine parishes and their boundaries – Chair’s Letter

The letter mentions a presentation – South Norfolk CGR Jan 2017 V4

The Parish Council meeting on 14th March will provide the opportunity for you to hear and question Phil Hardy, our South Norfolk Councillor, about the Review and its implications.
