Foot path news! The Parish Council have not
given up and are still trying to get a footpath to Watton
The Parish Council is investigating the possibility of obtaining funding for a footpath to Watton.
This has been an ongoing issue over many years with Norfolk Highways Department not able to commit to this project ,even though walking along this stretch of road has become more hazadous in recent years.
There is the requirement for a footbridge which will obviously increase the cost but with one near serious accident on this stretch of road, this project has become even more of a priority.
However, this April grant funding is being requested so that Norfolk highways can construct a footpath along the west side of the A1075 with a continuation path linking to the existing path on the Watton side.
A foot bridge is also being requested, but this will have to be financed by the Parish.
Local people discuss planning proposal
At a packed Village Hall meeting on Wednesday 17th October 2012, heated discussion took place concerning the proposed development at Otterwood Kennels for the location of 8 Travellers' sites.
This application was later withdrawn, followed by a more recent, modified application, which has not been fully submitted.
Details of the original submission can be found at:
Enter Saham Toney as the location.
