Notice to Bunwell Residents




We know you care about where you live


With new legislation called The Localism Act, Parish Planning control can be passed from District to Parish provided the Parish has in place a creditable and acceptable Neighbourhood Plan.

Our Parish council has, we are told, been working on this Neighbourhood Plan for some considerable time.


It appears to us that there are some worrying details that are likely to change our village and our peaceful way of life.
