Parish Council Vacancy

The Parish Council has a vacancy for a Councillor.  Great Yarmouth Borough Council issued a notice giving members of the electorate the opportunity to request a Poll in order to fill the vacancy however this was not requested so Council will now be tasked with Co-opting someone to join the Parish Council.

If you have ever considered getting involved as a Councillor then please do have a discussion with the Clerk on 01493 749938 or or any current Councillor.

It is a very good way to be involved in your village and you really can make a difference.

Community Land Trust Meeting – Tuesday 13 March 2018

Great Yarmouth Borough Council have arranged a meeting on Tuesday 13 March 2018 to discuss the potential of setting up a Community Land Trust or Trusts covering the northern parishes.  The meeting will take place at All Saints Hall, Scratby at 7pm.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is exploring Community Land Trusts as a way for communities to take the lead on bringing forward new affordable homes within their own areas.

The meeting on 13 March follows a positive initial gathering in December which aimed to gauge community interest in setting up a Trust or Trusts for the north of the Borough.

In the south a new Lothingland CLT has already been established covering Belton, Browston, Burgh Castle, Fritton and St Olaves.

All residents are invited to attend.
