Norfolk County Council is conducting a survey into Parish Councils. They are looking into whether borders between parishes should be redrawn and whether some Parish Councils should be merged or amalgamated.
Your Parish Council feel that, while our way of working is not perfect, one Parish Council for Dickleburgh and Rushall with nine Parish Councillors is a system that works well.
If you agree – or if you don’t agree – please have your say by answering the questionnaire. The deadline for replying is July 12th.
