NORTH NORFOLK DISTRICT COUNCIL’S DRAFT LOCAL PLANS

Since the presentation by Mark Ashwell, the Planning Policy Manager of North Norfolk, at the Parish Council Meeting on 5th June a Public Meeting was held in order for residents to express their views on the First Draft of the Local Plan issued for consultation by the North Norfolk District Council. Ed Maxfield our County Councillor and Greg Hayman our District Councillor attended, besides seven Parish Councillors the Clerk and twenty eight residents. After an explanation of the main issues raised in the Plan, Ed and Greg fielded questions and comments from the residents and after a well delivered lively debate from the residents two main issues emerged. Firstly, it was recognised that the NNDC are proposing to make a change of designation of Trunch village from Countryside to an Area for Small Scale Development which would allow some allocation (to be announced in Part 2 of the Plan next Spring) of new ‘open market’ housing. Secondly, concern over the lack of adequate infrastructure and the drastic effect on local services the building of a total of 2590 houses in North Walsham, 909 in Cromer and 117 in Mundesley between 2016 and 2036 will have on us all. Sufficient interest and valid points of concern were raised and as a result the Parish Council and individuals can make reasoned responses to support Trunch remaining a Countryside Area in order to control what type of development (affordable housing), if any, should be allowed and to seek assurances that any development will go hand in hand with the provision of adequate infrastructure and local services. The last matter may require lobbying of Central Government. If you wish to make individual responses, and I urge you to do this, you can do so online by login to
www.north-norfolk.gov.uk/localplanconsultation .
Part 2 of the Draft Local  Plan is due for issue in the Spring of next year (2020). This part will identify the number of dwellings and preferred site(s) for development in Trunch.

BRINGING THE WORLD OF BEE KEEPING TO LOCAL PRIMARY SCHOOL

Guided by Charlene Pinkham, a member of the Trunch Beekeeping Group, our beekeepers Michele Horsefield, Julia Smith and Liz Miles visited North Walsham Junior School to give the children an insight into the life of honey bees, caring for them and the honey making process.

 

 

 

 

 

NEW GOALS FOR THE PLAYING FIELD

The young people who play football thanked the Parish Council and Village Society for providing and installing the new goals. It seems we have scored a winner on this occasion! Well done the team of volunteers who put up the goals.

THE WOODLAND TRUST – TREE PLANTING

As part of a campaign by the Woodland Trust to help combat climate change the Parish Council have been given 105 trees to plant. The Council is planning to plant them mainly around the West and South edges of the playing field to boost the density where the existing shrubs and trees grow in order to augment and protect the natural habitats of wild life. The pack of trees comprise a mix of hawthorn, blackthorn, silver birch, hazel, common oak and rowan. With so much in the news recently you must have been moved by the voices of young people calling for us to protect the future of the planet. The planting of trees is only a small contribution and the Parish Council and Village Society are looking at other ways to support our local environment to help create a lasting legacy for future generations.

The trees are due to arrive in November and we are asking if you could spare a morning/afternoon to help with the planting.  Once we have a delivery date I can arrange suitable times for the planting. Although we will have some tools, if you could please bring a spade with you this would be appreciated. Please let me know if you can help by phoning 01263 720252 or by email at brianboughton@btinternet.com

A Note from the Local Management Team :-

All pub users, and even those who just walk by, will have seen the resurgence of the Trunch Crown; come in and experience the convivial atmosphere, the welcome of the bar staff and the friendliness of the patrons.

We all must appreciate a ‘good local’ is vital to any village as it provides a meeting place for us all to commune socially. It also has the capacity to support events and activities in the village, like concerts etc. It can provide a vital attraction to those who holiday in the area, giving refreshment, guidance and a place to meet others.

All this makes it important to have a great village pub, that’s warm, welcoming and a place where all are comfortable to visit.

The great news is that after much work with Bateman’s, The Crown has opened under a local licensee Iain Chambers who lives in the village. This has been made possible with help from local people who are assisting financially and with skills that will allow the pub not just to re-open, but be brought up to a high standard of environment and offer.

The pub is going to be open 7 days a week, with a food offer of Pizza/Pasta (Inc Takeaway) in the week and back to the traditional roast on Sunday’s. We will have a great range of beers, wines and spirits (including local gins!). Quality tea and Coffee will be served as well as pies and other snacks. Quiz nights, music and other events will be staged.

We hope the pub will return to its place at the heart of the village and hope to work with the village societies to help them with their aims.

We hope  you will join Iain at the pub and show your support by coming in for a drink or a meal, and make sure the pub can take its place once more in the heart of the village.

See you in the Trunch Crown!!!  Support your local
