Beetley Village Hall. There were present six Parish Councillors one of whom, Councillor R Richmond is also the District Councillor and one member of the public.
Planning. Applications. The Parish Council were pleased that the revised plans for the erection of 1 dwelling with integral garage at Flint Cottage Fakenham Road East Bilney showed that the property is to be connected to the mains drainage and that additional parking and turning has been provided. However, the members again objected to the application for the same reasons as previously especially as no turning facility has been provided for Flint Cottage. Decisions. Breckland Council had given approval for the extension and alteration to dwelling to enable additional living and bedroom accommodation on first floor and to demolish the timber frame garage and replace and relocate with a larger garage at Kosikot Church Road Old Beetley.
