 CALL FOR SITES

The Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) is being produced by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council working together with Norfolk County Council through the Greater Development Partnership (GDNP). They undertook a ‘Call for Sites’ between January and March of 2018. This covered sites across the three Districts.   

The Taverham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is undertaking a further ‘Call for Sites’ just for the Taverham Parish area to see if there
are any sites that might be suitable for future development in the Parish that were not put forward as part of the GNLP consultation in March and to check that those that were put forward during that consultation are still available. 

Forms and guidance notes can be found here: http://www.taverhamplan.co.uk/

Completed forms need to be received by 4th January 2019

Taverham Village Hall - Tuesday 11 December (12 – 6pm)

 

Welcome to Taverham Parish Council Website

Twist TreeTaverham is a large village situated on the bank of the River Wensum roughly 6 miles north-west of Norwich. With approximately 10,700 inhabitants, the parish is divided into two wards (north and south) and is represented by fifteen parish councillors. Councillors are either elected or co-opted and voluntarily carry out duties for the council. Council and committee meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of the month at Taverham Village Hall and start at 7.30pm. Agendas are placed in noticeboards at various locations around the parish in advance and members of the public are encouraged to attend.

Other volunteers working on behalf of the Council include drivers for the Parish of Taverham Community Help (PATCH) scheme and the woodland volunteers. PATCH is a group of residents who will take Taverham parishioners to appointments such as doctors, dentists, hospital etc for a nominal fee to cover fuel costs. If you wish to volunteer or to find out more information please call Tracy on 261300.

The woodlands volunteers work in conjunction with the Council’s arboriculture contractor to maintain Ghosthill Wood and Eastfield. They meet on the second Saturday of the month, 10am at the Norgate Way entrance to the wood.

The parish council has allotments available to parishioners on a first come first served basis. Taverham Allotment and Leisure Gardeners Association (TALGA) manages the site and is currently only accepting applications from Taverham residents to be on the waiting list.
