The Expansion of Easton
Within Persimmon’s latest design plans for their development, they have identified buffer zones of 3 – 5 metres between existing property boundaries and the new build houses.
The Easton Neighbourhood Plan (ENP) stipulates that any new development should adopt a green zone buffer of at least 10 metres. This point was endorsed by 97% of respondents at the time the Plan was produced by Easton Parish Council.
The full ENP has also been approved by South Norfolk Council and incorporated into its planning guidelines. Further information on buffer zones can be found on pages 29/30 of the ENP.
Full details are available on the SNC website, under planning application reference is 2019/1963
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.
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.

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 DEFIBRILLATOR (DEFIB)
We now have 3 Defibrillators in the village.
They are located at:
1. The Village Hall, Marlingford Road
2. The Rembrandt Restaurant, Dereham Road
3. Outside 73 Ringland Road, Lower Easton
Without the fantastic support we would not be in the position to purchase this life saving equipment.

The neighbourhood plan will help shape the design of all future development within the parish boundary.
In December it was accepted as a 'made' document and now forms part of South Norfolk Councils Planning Policies and its standing is backed by the Neighbourhood Planning act 2017.

New LED Lights for St Peters Path

This change should save around 453 kgCO2e per annum.
