Western Link Route C
Norwich Western Link

The development of a Norwich Western Link, to connect the new Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NDR) from the A1067 to the A47 west of Norwich, is one of County Councils top infrastructure priorities.

The village is represented on the NWL local liaison group by our Chair. Members of the public have the right to attend these meeting.

Local Development Order - Food Hub

As a parish Council we have continued to raise concerns over the current plans and the proposed routing of HGV traffic though part of the village.

Broadland District have not  been very open to providing information on what is happening , they attempted to put though a planning application number 20180471 without providing an opportunity for consultation.

We have now created a dedicated page as much detail as we can so that local residents can stay informed as to what is happening.

Community Centre Build 


The new Community Centre project is progressing well. To complete the project we have now reached the stage, as expected, to seek an advance – as a loan - on the funding which is due to come to Easton over the coming years through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on the Persimmon development.

The loan will be funded by the Parish Council without the need to increase the precept to pay for the loan.

Thank you to those residents who attended the Parish Council meeting on Friday 15th December 2023 and heard the debate on the loan. If you want to understand more please see the ‘Report to Council’ on the Parish Council website for all the details, costs involved and supporting information.

Initially, the loan was to be through South Norfolk Council but South Norfolk Council thought it would be better for Easton to borrow the money directly from the Public Works Loan Board rather than South Norfolk Council borrowing the money themselves from the Public Works Loan Board and then lending it to Easton at a higher interest rate.

Easton Parish Council are currently undergoing the application stage and are seeking approval from the Secretary of State for the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities to apply for a PWLB loan of £500,000.

If you want to see more on the construction of the new Community Centre, including a time-lapse video, please visit the dedicated website at

Bus Shelter Suffers £650 of Damage

The Bus Shelter that was installed on the 15th May 2018 has suffered hundreds of pounds of damage.

Money that was to be used on other projects will now have to be spent on making safe the shelter and undertaking repairs.

We are hoping someone has seen who was responsible for this mindless vandalism and will contact the Police on 101.

New LED Lights for St Peters Path

We recently installed 6 new LED street lights to replace the existing lights along St Peters Path. These lights are fitted with a sensor and should go off between midnight and 5am each day.

This change should save around 453 kgCO2e per annum.

Speak up if you suspect domestic violence or abuse

If you suspect that someone you know is being abused, speak up! If you’re hesitating—telling yourself that it’s none of your business, you might be wrong, or that the person might not want to talk about it—keep in mind that expressing your concern will let the person know that you care and may even save their life.

Talk to the person in private and let them know that you’re concerned. Point out the signs you’ve noticed that worry you. Tell the person that you’re there for them, whenever they feel ready to talk. Reassure them that you’ll keep whatever is said between the two of you, and let them know that you’ll help in any way you can.

Remember, abusers are very good at controlling and manipulating their victims. People who have been emotionally or physically abused are often depressed, drained, scared, ashamed, and confused. They need help getting out of the situation, yet their partner has often isolated them from their family and friends. By picking up on the warning signs and offering support, you can help them escape an abusive situation and begin healing.
