After the meeting Steve Beckett from South Norfolk District Council spoke about the coming appraisal of the village conservation area which led to a lively debate. All parishioners should have received a map showing the draft proposed changes to the conservation with their recent copy of the Bugle and you can see it by clicking Conservation area draft #1. It will be a few weeks before the formal appraisal is published but if you have views on the  draft proposal or have other comments about changes to the conservation area please send them to and it would be useful if you could copy your email to the Parish Clerk
