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.


NCC has written to us about a public consultation on the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP)which opened on 8th January and continues until 15th March 2018 (see www.gnlp.org.uk for details).

It is important to note that this is a consultation – no final decisions have been made on any policy choice or site. The consultation will include:

  • a Growth Options document setting out the broad housing numbers required to 2036;
  • six main distribution options;
  • a significant number of questions on various policy areas (such as air quality, landscape and affordable housing); and,
  • the Site Proposals document, listing sites submitted for consideration for various uses through the plan, along with a settlement summary for those parishes where sites have been submitted.
  • (The Wreningham Site Proposal plan is here: GNLP_Wreningham.)

In addition, the Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) in the evidence base has more detail on the sites submitted for potential inclusion in the GNLP. Other evidence studies, along with the Interim Sustainability Appraisal, will also available for comment.

About 25 roadshows at various locations in Greater Norwich have been planned for the consultation period. The venues and dates are published on www.gnlp.org.uk. A separate briefing, to inform parish councils of the main details of the consultation exercise, has been arranged at South Norfolk Council’s office in Long Stratton (the Council Chamber) on Tuesday 16th January. (MH: I expect to attend and will feed back any particular information after the meeting.)

If there are any questions, please email LP@s-norfolk.gov.uk.

We have received a request to publicise the work of a Charity, Solo Housing, within the South Norfolk. Solo Housing is a charity supporting the single, homeless in East Anglia, based in Diss, and is funded by South Norfolk Council.

Their aim is to help by providing accommodation from their Register of Landlords and Landladies.  This accommodation is predominantly ‘lodgings’ – their own room with shared use of the rest of the property.  They also offer advice and support to both the client and landlord/lady throughout the placement, if required.

There is a constant demand for this type of rented accommodation as ‘lodgings’ are affordable by those on low incomes.  This means, of course, that there is an ongoing necessity to recruit new providers.

The contact is Sarah Forder, Homelessness Prevention Officer, and details are in the leaflet linked to above.

Many Parishioners have asked the Parish Council to do something about speeding through the village in addition to the law, official speed limit signs and our regular use of the speed reporting device. We asked SNC and neighbouring parishes about our options. They reported that speed stickers on wheelie bins to remind drivers of the 30 mph speed limit seem to be effective. So, we have a supply of stickers and will be distributing two to each household within the 30 mph zone in the next few days.

Please note that SNC ask that these are affixed to the bins as shown in the image – i.e. on the side and not over the SNC logo on the front of the bin.

Any comments to the Clerk or to info@wreningham.org.
