South Norfolk Council Community Governance Review 2017-2018

Caistor St Edmund Parish Council invites you as a resident of the Parish to have your say on the South Norfolk Council Community Governance Review 2017 – 2018

What is it?

  • A review of all of the parishes in the South Norfolk district;
  • to ensure that community governance for the district continues to be effective and convenient;
  • and reflects the identities and interests of the community.

The review will consider:

  • Parish areas – creating, merging, altering or abolishing parishes
  • The naming of parishes and the style of new parishes
  • The electoral arrangements for parishes (the ordinary year of elections; council size, the number of councillors to be elected to the council, and parish warding)
  • Grouping parishes under a common parish council or de-grouping parishes
  • Consequential matters – e.g. the effect on existing parishes; dealing with parish assets; resolving issues relating to employees of existing parishes; setting a precept for a new Council; setting a date for the next elections and subsequent electoral cycles.


This will only take a short space of time only 11 questions in total and if you are happy with your current Parish arrangements only 7 questions to complete.  Closing date for responses is 12th June 2017.  Closing date extended to 12th July 2017!

If you require any further information please contact the Parish Clerk @ or Chairman @ or 01508 494198.
