Littering and dog fouling survey
A borough-wide review of dog fouling and littering is being undertaken to gain a full picture of where there are problem spots and how much of a problem it really is. An online survey has been produced for residents, town and parish councils, schools and businesses to complete.
Visit www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/haveyoursay to provide your comments.
Cllr Ian Devereux, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We get a lot of anecdotal information about dog fouling and littering, so we are hoping that by asking specific questions about locations and times of offences we can start to identify where resources need to be targeted and also what local people can do to help. The more surveys that are completed, the better the picture we will get, so I would urge everyone to fill in the form, tell us what’s happening in their area, and provide specific locations where possible.”
The survey is open until the end of July. After that the results will be analysed and a report prepared for consideration by the council’s Environment and Community panel.

Parish Councillor Vacancy
Are you interested in joining the Parish Council?
A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years. People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor, although their personal views should not extend into their parish council work.
South Creake Parish Council has one Parish Councillor vacancy, which we are now able to fill by ‘co-option’.
Becoming a Parish Councillor is a rewarding and valued form of public service. All Councillors contribute to the work of the Parish Council by:
1 Having a say about the things they care about
2 Putting forward ideas for better services
3 Responding to the needs and views of parishioners
4 Seeking the best outcome to local issues
5 Getting involved in decision making
6 Helping to make South Creake a better place to live!
We normally meet on the first Monday of the month. Meetings commence at 7.30 pm lasting up to 2 hours. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.
Still interested? Contact the Parish Clerk for further details or complete the application form below.
All applications need to be returned to the Clerk by 31st August, 2018.

The Parish Council would like to advise that due to a delay in approving the grounds maintenance with Norse Eastern until May, areas of grass within the village that the Parish Council are responsible for became very overgrown. These included the village green and playing field.
Following receipt of the signed contract, Norse Eastern has worked with the Parish Council to arrange for these areas to be cut as quickly as possible. Please note that this involved the hire of an additional piece of equipment to deal with the grass on the playing field. The remaining areas of grass have been cut today (24th May).
Please could I ask anyone with any queries regarding grounds maintenance to get in touch with myself (the Clerk), so that I am able to take the relevant action on behalf of the Parish Council.
