Useful Information

Local Services & Facilities

Snettisham is a Key Rural Service Centre in the Local Plan. We have many services that other rural communities might envy, and a thriving network of organisations and clubs. If you run a group and would like us to include your details, please contact us by email.

To help keep the information on this page up to date, we have generally provided links direct to the providers’ websites, rather than individual documents. We have added a further page with information posters from third parties – see the extra tab in the “useful information” section. Please note this does not imply that we have direct knowledge of these organisations, or that we endorse them.

The Common:
The Parish Council owns the Common on behalf of the Village. Common Land is a valuable recreational and environmental resource. We manage it under a Plan devised with Norfolk Wildlife Trust, in order to encourage ecological diversity, and make the most of its geological features. A new Plan has just been adopted.

The sand pit is a remarkable feature: Geological Information on sand pit.

The Beach:
Work on the beach takes place every year to ensure the defence of the land behind the foreshore. Funding for this comes from a variety of sources, including a local contribution from businesses to the Community Interest Company. Up to date information (June 2020) on this is available in this Wash East Coast Management Strategy update

Who to contact:
