A47 Dualling Proposal Easton

Currently Highways England wishes to move the position of the current roundabout near the church of St Peters to a position near Blind Lane and close the current road access to Lower Easton.

After the first round of consultation an adjusted plan has been created however this is likely to be changed before the next round of public consultations in early 2019.

Jubilee Playing Field Fundraising

Jubilee Playing Field Appeal

On the 23rd July work starts on phase 1 of the refurbishment program.  This will see the £14,000 which was released from the  Parish Council reserves being utilised.

We have secured a grant of £2,000 towards the cost of refurbishment for the Norfolk Playing Fields Association but we still have a long way to go.

After consultation with local children, we now understand fully what they would like to see in the play area including a zip line. 

The likely cost to completely revitalize the existing play equipment within the park will require around an extra £20,000.

To be able to do this we need your support to raise the necessary funds to be able to replace the existing aging equipment.

New Homes for Easton

Work starts in earnest to bring forward 64 homes on the Dereham Road. The surveyors will be on site from the 4 April helping to prepare the formal application to SNC which we are hoping will be considered late October. The parish council is supporting this project with the aim of building new homes that are affordably priced for local residents. We are looking to include two fully accessible bungalows within our proposal and having some properties to rent directly from the parish council.

As the project moves forward we will keep you up to date with future news.

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.
