Norwich Western Link Information

In early November, Norfolk County Council published four potential route options for a Norwich Western Link, to connect the western end of Broadland Northway (formerly the Northern Distributor Road) to the A47.

The shortlist is made up of three new dual carriageway roads and a single carriageway upgrade to the B1535, and all of the options also include improvements to the A1067 Fakenham Road.

A public consultation on these routes will run between Monday 26 November 2018 and Friday 18 January 2019. During the consultation, people will be asked for their views on the options and these responses will help the council identify a preferred option for a Norwich Western Link in spring 2019. The consultation is also an opportunity to tell the council about any relevant information they should consider before deciding on a preferred route.

People can find out more about the options and respond to the consultation online via www.norfolk.gov.uk/nwl from Monday 26 November. People can also respond in person, and ask any questions they may have, at a series of staffed consultation events taking place throughout the consultation period. Information on these events is below, all the events will run between 2 and 8pm unless otherwise stated and people can drop in at any point between these opening times.

Battle’s Over Information

Important update regarding Hardingham Defibrillator

Regarding the recent announcement by the BHF

Hardingham Parish Council needs to stress that, contrary to the recent media release issued by the British Heart Foundation, ALL defibrillators registered via the Community Heartbeat Trust are fully registered with their local ambulance services.

The defibrillator in our village (situated at the Memorial Hall) is registered with the CHT and therefore with our local ambulance service.  It also features on the National Defibrillator Database, and the machine itself undergoes monthly checks by volunteers on the Parish Council and reports are sent electronically to the appropriate governance system.

Please be reassured that our local ambulance service has immediate access to the location of all defibrillators in the area, including our own.

If needed, further information about the BHF’s “misleading” media release can be obtained by contacting richardburke77@gmail.com

Broadband Update – August 2018 (2)

I received notification from Karen O’Kane, NCC on 7th August saying ‘Just to let you know issues have been resolved and the solution is now live’.  I have heard from other residents that this may not be the case.  If you have issues with broadband please either contact me (Clerk to the Parish Council) and I will pass the message to Karen, or contact her directly through the ‘get in touch’ section of the website:  www.betterbroadbandnorfolk.co.uk.
