Town and Parish Councils Help Hub

North Norfolk District Council is keen to work with the 121 town and parish councils across the district to support local communities and residents on the issues that matter to them. In the sections below, you can find information on resources and support available to clerks and parish councillors.

Town and parish council support and news

Find out about our regular engagement forums and access key information, including the register of interest form and Code of Conduct, parish boundary maps and information about grants and funding.

Coast and countryside

Find out about our coastal protection schemes, how to apply for work on a tree or hedge and learn about biodiversity and wildlife schemes. You can also access information on footpaths and rights of way.

Built environment and planning

The planning service guides how our towns, villages and countryside develop. All town and parish councils will likely be regularly involved in the planning process. The links in this section will help you find key information and updates.  

Better living environment

We provide services that ensure that our residents live in a clean, welcoming and supportive environment. It ranges from individual support via our Community Connector team to waste collection and access to public conveniences. 

Organising events

Organising a public event of any size can be complex and stressful. The resources in this section may be helpful to you as an organiser for such an event.


Useful links and downloads
