Snettisham Parish Council

NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

After much work by the Team, we are now able to present the Neighbourhood Plan for the Official Village Pre-submission Consultation. This is the six-week period for you to respond to the Plan, directly to the Parish Council, and runs from 25th June to 7th August 2017. There is a raft of paperwork – listed below with explanations:

Neighbourhood Plan 2017 – this is the final version for you to comment on before we submit it officially
Notification – the formal press and public notice announcing the consultation, and how to respond
Basic Conditions Statement – explaining the rules under which the Plan was developed, and how we believe we have met them
Borough Council advice on SEA/HRA – the Borough advised we should have these two assessments (see below)
HRA – a Habitat Regulation Assessment of the Plan’s impact
SEA Scoping Report – an account of what things we must consider under a Strategic Environmental Assessment when developing the Plan
SEA – the Assessment of the Plan under the scope of the above report

Once this process concludes, and we absorb any comments, the Plan will go to the Borough for its formal role, and, we hope, a prompt return for the Referendum. 50% plus one vote will make this document Planning law for the Parish, so it is really important that residents keep well-informed and involved.

We have approved the accounts for this year, and they have been audited by our Internal Auditor. They have been sent to Mazars for the formal, external, audit. The figures are available on the site under meetings.

Snettisham is a pretty seaside village situated between Sandringham and Hunstanton. The village has excellent community spirit. We have 13 parish councillors who meet monthly. The parish council is very active and work very hard to keep the village looking wonderful with help from the many parishioners who are keen to be involved in village life.

The council operates as a number of Lead Councillor Support Groups, each with a lead councillor supported by 3 or 4 other councillors who have an interest in that subject area, who take responsibility for certain aspects of council business. The  Groups each have a fixed agenda item on every full Council agenda and report back to the full council at these meetings. Each lead councillor will give an update report to Council on their activities at each meeting, to include briefing councillors in respect of any decisions Council is required to make.  Finance is the responsibility of all councillors, under the leadership of the Responsible Finance Officer. The Standing Orders under which the council operates can be found here .

Parishioners are welcome to attend Parish Council meetings, normally held on the first Wednesday of every month.
