Message from NNDC Highways
If you have any specific highway maintenance issues, we would be grateful for any information to ensure these issues are considered by the Inspector who will be taking account of maintenance needs of the road network in your area.
Our key concern is maintaining the essential elements with regard to the safety of the highway network, with this in mind our highest priority -
Potholes – an accurate location and dimensions (including depth) really help us to judge their priority.
Regular incidences of Standing water/ flooding – location and area affected are important, in addition any knowledge of any features which may be blocked, does the ponding eventually clear over time, does this only occur during heavy rain. Recently heavy rain falls and wash from fields has caused issues over which we sometimes have no control. We can clear gulley pots and back ditches and grips within the highway boundary.
Mud on road – this is a common occurrence in our rural community. If this repeatedly affects highway users ability to travel, is not signed in advance or is simply left following farming activity, the most useful information is contact details of the responsible party. Be assured that this information is completely confidential, we will not disclose any details of an enquiry.
Should you wish to add any work, for consideration by the Inspector, please email these to firstname.lastname@example.org including RANGER and YOUR PARISH NAME in the subject title. Please provide as much information as possible including the exact location and specific concerns. We aim to provide feedback on the work which has been carried out during the visit this will follow within a few weeks. At any time please feel free to contact us to discuss any maintenance questions or concerns you may have. Please keep in mind that our resources and access to materials may affect our ability to respond to some lower priority defects
Thank you in advance for any information you can offer to assist with our service during this difficult time
Postal Voting in 2021 Elections
On Thursday 6 May 2021 elections will be taking place in North Norfolk with electors voting
in the Norfolk County Council elections and the Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner
Election. There are also several Parish Council by-elections also scheduled to be held on
Given the ongoing situation with the Covid-19 pandemic we want to give electors as much
time as possible to change voting arrangements if voting in a Polling Station during the
pandemic is not desired.
If you wish to vote by post please click the link at the bottom of this text for an application
form. Alternatively you can contact us by email at email@example.com or by
phone on 01263 516046 and we will send you a form.
Local Returning Officer and Chief Executive Steve Blatch said:
"Whilst we are making arrangements for the safe delivery of elections at Polling Stations
within North Norfolk at the forthcoming elections we are aware that a higher number of our
electorate may wish to conduct their vote by post on this occasion, given the ongoing Covid-
The North Norfolk district has the oldest average age demographic in the UK, so by nature
we will be seeing a larger number of our residents having a higher level of vulnerability from
the virus, so applying for a Postal Vote is an effective way for our local electors to still have
their say on Thursday 6 May"
Please note that any application for a postal vote must be completed by hand using
‘wet ink’ and we are unable to accept any digitally signed applications.
In order to apply for a postal vote, you must be a registered elector within North Norfolk. If
you need to register the easiest way to do so is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote but
again alternatively you can contact us by phone on 01263 516046 to do so.
Given the anticipated high volume of applications for postal votes we advise you to make
your applications as soon as possible.
The Carers Matter service in Norfolk has now been refreshed since 1st September to provide additional support to unpaid carers in Norfolk. We are keen to reach out to as many carers as possible to let them know about the changes and encourage them to get in touch. The Carers Matter Norfolk service on behalf of Norfolk County Council now offers Carers assessments, support, advice and information. The advice line is open 7 days a week and can refer to the Community Carer Connector team who can provide one to one information and support.
The refreshed service wants to improve the health and well-being of carers and their capacity to fulfil their caring role. Along with Carers Assessments the service now offers carers breaks, health and wellbeing fund, education and training and a follow up service to check in with carers to ensure they have the support they need. You can find out further information by visiting www.carersmatternorfolk.org.uk.
