Planning & Development in Bunwell

Earlier this year Bunwell Parish Council established the Bunwell Planning Development Group comprising four lay volunteers and four parish councillors. The group is preparing recommendations for the Parish Council’s response to The Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP).

The GNLP is being jointly produced by South Norfolk, Broadland District and Norwich City Councils in partnership with Norfolk County Council. The GNLP "aim[s] to produce a plan which will help to meet local housing and economic growth needs, whilst also protecting and enhancing the environment" for the period 2026 to 2038.

The group is working on a suggested parish council response to the GNLP with the aim of ensuring that:

1. Long-term planning and development in Bunwell meets the village’s future housing needs.
2. Bunwell assimilates the housing allocation deemed necessary under the GNLP.
3. Future development is in-keeping and sympathetic to Bunwell’s character.
4. Bunwell develops in the way most villagers want to see the village develop.

Bunwell Children's Playground and Outside Gym

Yesterday, following Government COVID-19 Guidance,  the children's playground, zip wire and outside gym were cleaned and this morning they were reopened.

It must be remembered that these are unattended facilities and it is the responsibility of parents, carers and those in charge of children to supervise their children and to take all necessary precautions for their well being and safety. This of course includes to use own wipes and hygiene products at all times and to thoroughly wash hands immediately afterwards. Such precautions must also be taken by all older children and adults attending the playground or using facilities including the zip wire, intermediate equipment and the outside gym.
