Activity and Sports Participation Public Survey Launch – We want your views

GYBC residents asked to help shape the future of local sporting infrastructure

If you live in the Borough, Active Norfolk and GYBC would like to hear from you.

Using a short 10-15 minute survey, we want to learn about your physical activity levels and how much you use, or don’t use, these facilities. We’ll also be asking what you like and don’t like about these facilities and what improvements and benefits you would like to see.

This information will be used to help shape local understanding of the role these facilities play in residents’ lives, and help inform what futures services and offers are made available to residents.

Plus if you complete the survey, you have the option of being entered into a prize draw to win one of ten £15 One4all gift cards that can be spent at a range of high street stores and online, as well as some other great prizes!

Pick up a hard copy of the questionnaire along with a freepost envelope at the following locations: Town Hall Great Yarmouth, Great Yarmouth Library, Gorleston Library, Marina Centre, and the Phoenix Pool and Gym. Or complete it online at www.great-yarmouth.gov.uk/have-your-say.

The survey will be open from September 17 to October 12, so don’t miss this chance to have your say!

(20/08/2018) Message from Great Yarmouth Borough Council regarding Draft Local Plan Part 2

Dear Consultee,

 Consultation on Draft Local Plan Part 2

(Development Management Policies, Site Allocations, and Revised Housing Target)

 I am writing to inform you that consultation on Draft Local Plan Part 2 will take place over a six week period from 20th August to 30th September 2018 (inclusive) and we welcome your comments.

 The Draft Local Plan Part 2 document shows what the Council is thinking about having in terms of: 

detailed policies for planning applications;

allocations of sites for development; 

a reduction in the overall housing target for the Borough, and a few minor updates to other Core Strategy policies;

the replacement of the remaining old ‘saved’ policies (from the former Borough-wide Local Plan of 2001); and

changes to the Local Plan Policies Map, to give effect to the above.

The Council wants to know what people think of these provisional proposals, and whether there are any better options, before it makes up its mind on what policies and allocations it formally proposes to adopt.

Once it is completed and adopted, the Local Plan Part 2 will provide the detailed policies to help achieve the general type and distribution of development for the plan period up to 2030 already decided by the Core Strategy (Local Plan Part 1), which the Council adopted in 2015.

The consultation documents comprise:

Main Documents

Draft Local Plan Part 2

Draft Policies Map (formerly known as a proposals map).  This is in two sheets, one for the whole plan area, and an inset showing the Great Yarmouth town/ Gorleston area in greater detail.  Extracts from the Policies Map for each settlement, at a larger scale, are also included in the relevant chapters of the Draft Local Plan Part 2 document itself.

Supporting documents:

Draft Sustainability Appraisal Report, showing how the different potential options were evaluated.

Draft Habitats Regulations Assessment Report, showing how the Draft Plan’s potential impacts on internationally protected habitats and species was evaluated and is addressed.

(23/10/2017) Mineral Extraction in Fritton Woods

You might have heard that Norfolk County Council has undertaken a ‘call for sites’ in which it requests that landowners who have sites which they think are suitable for mineral extraction to put them forward and that Brett Aggregates has put the Waveney (Fritton) Forest site forward for consideration. 

We have been informed that Norfolk County Council will be considering all the sites which have been put forward. This will take some months.  They will then decide which sites are worth further consideration and will undertake a consultation on this list; this is unlikely to happen before the middle of 2018.  They will then consider the consultation responses before preparing their draft list of allocations, which will also be subject to consultation.

Please see below an article published in the Great Yarmouth Mercury on 13/10/2017.

 (02/10/2017) COMMUNICATION FROM BOROUGH Cllr. MYERS

(31/07/2017 to 29/09/2017 EXPIRED) Great Yarmouth Borough Council Election Referendum Announcement

Notice of Referendum Election Cycle

 

(25/07/2017) Information received for residents from Great Yarmouth District Engagement Officer, Great Yarmouth Police Station, Norfolk Constabulary: 

Over the past few days there have been 3 break-ins to garages in Fritton. It appears that garden tools / equipment have been stolen.

Investigations are underway. Please can I ask that you share the following crime prevention advice with your community:

  • Keep windows and doors locked
  • Remove window keys and keep them in a safe place.  However, everyone should know where the keys are kept so they can escape in an emergency
  • Use or consider fitting a door chain and spy hole- a chain allows you to speak to the caller without opening the door fully and the spy hole allows you to see who is at the door
  • Fit five lever mortise deadlocks to all external doors to BS3621
  • Fit multi-locking systems to patio doors or install mortise security bolts with removable keys at the top and bottom of both doors
  • Considering fitting a letterbox cage or restrictor which prevents burglars from putting their hands or gadgets through the letter box and trying the latches from the inside.
  • Never leave a spare key in a convenient hiding place such as under the doormat, burglars know all the usual hiding places
  • Never leave your house or car keys in or near a door or window
