The planning application from FW Properties for the development in Church Road of a site for 10 houses was displayed for parishioners to view, discuss and subsequently pass their comments onto South Norfolk Council.

The Chair of the Parish Council wishes to thank all those that came to the Hall during the afternoon of 24th and the morning of 25th November. Also, thanks for the practical assistance of John Bligh and Keith Morris in erecting and taking down the display boards, and, posting the drawings and supporting documents. The Clerk, Anne Rayner, assisted and removed the material for the next Parish Council meeting which will be on 30th November at 8.00pm in the Margaret Preston Room to discuss this planning application.



On 19th August at the Bird in Hand the developers, FW Partnership, held a consultation event on their design for the development of 10 houses on Church Road in advance of producing the planning application. We understand that some 75 people attended and a number of written and verbal comments were made. These are presented in the Statement of Community Involvement produced by FW Partnership.

The planning application has now been made – see  application 2015/2449 on the SNC website.

To aid parishioners when considering the development’s planning application and to help inform the comments they may wish to make to SNC, the Parish Council is arranging to display the plans and supporting material for parishioners’ inspection at the Village Hall:

  • 24th November – 12 noon to 5 pm (possibly later)
  • 25th November – 9 am to 1 pm.

I would appreciate the assistance of volunteers to help put up the display on the Tuesday morning, assist during the display period and then take it down in the afternoon of Wednesday. Please contact the Clerk ( or 01508 570700) to advise of your availability. Thank you.
