How to Report Flooding

Following a recent meeting held, it was queried how Town/Parish Councils and members of the public should go about reporting incidences of flooding or works affecting a protected species.  To that end, I am pleased to provide the following information:

Drainage – reporting concerns,
Overflows/statutory nuisances caused by drains/cesspools/septic tanks:
Please notify Breckland Council at https://www.breckland.gov.uk/reportehissue
Please provide as much information as possible; there is also the facility to upload any supporting documents/photos. Alternatively, contact the council on 01362 656870

Issues relating to publicly owned drainage sewers:
*Please notify https://www.anglianwater.co.uk <https://www.anglianwater.co.uk/>

*Issues relating to ditches/non-emergency flooding issues:*Please contact Norfolk County Council Floods at
https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/rubbish-recycling-and-planning/flood-and-water-management

Flooding incidences
If the flooding is life-threatening, contact the emergency services and report the issue to Norfolk County Council at a later date
Report a flood at:*https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/safety/floods/report-a-flood
It is important that evidence is provided, such as photos or an insurance claim, to confirm that the property has been flooded internally. You will be asked to fill in a questionnaire and supply information about the incident, for example when it occurred, how the water entered the property, where the water came from (green space, road, toilet etc.).  If you do not have access to the internet, a paper copy can be posted to you – in this instance please call 0344 800 8020

Wildlife – reporting sights of protected species
to Norfolk Biodiversity Information Service (NBIS)
Website: *http://www.nbis.org.uk <http://www.nbis.org.uk/>
Includes information on species, habitats, protected sites, and geodiversity for Norfolk.  Wildlife records can be submitted via this site.
For more information on what constitutes a useable wildlife record, see http://www.nbis.org.uk/records
Contact:*[email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>
Please note:*the presence of any wildlife does not preclude development.  If you believe a protected species might be adversely affected by proposed works, please inform your Local Planning Authority. Guidance on protected species and the planning process can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/protected-species-how-to-review-planning-applications

A THANK YOU

Beetley Parish Council thanks all of the parishioners who work within the NHS and those who are continuing to work within the private sector to maintain the supply of goods and services during this unprecedented time.

BEETLEY PARISH COUNCIL MARCH UPDATE

The County Councillor has kindly donated some of his personal budget to the Wig-Wag signs so the Parish Council has £500 less to pay.
The invoice from Sovereign is a deposit to get things moving if possible for the new goal posts.
Norfolk ALC I have paid to ensure the website stays running. The cost is less than last year.

With regard to other matters Breckland has approved the amendments to fenestration at Vale Farm, refused permission for two self-build bungalows at Beetley Grange and refused the application for the erection of one dwelling and detached garage on plot adjacent to Redroofs Fakenham Road.
I have chased Foxburrow Farm for an answer on their solicitor’s search for crossing rights of the Common but have not had an answer.

The application to the National Lottery for funding for the play area has been refused and Councillors Rose and Leigh will progress this.

I have informed FT grounds to proceed with the grass cutting and this should start on 16/17 April.

The Play Area at Beetley River Meadows has been locked and signed.

I have sent an e-mail to the Pre-School and it is contacting its solicitor but no answer has been received yet.
I have chased Norse to clean the pavilion but have not had a reply. Obviously this will not get done at present.
Norfolk County Council in its consultation on the revised 21 service has stated that there are minimal passengers using the service 21 to Fakenham-0.2 passengers a day from Beetley and whilst Thursday is better supported a Thursday only service would not be sustainable.
Bus services have been amended and at present the Sanders 25 is going to Dereham on Friday but not Tuesday and Sanders 23 is still going to Norwich on a Wednesday but this is being reviewed daily.

A litter pick has been requested along B1146 but this is unlikely to get done yet.

Highways has confirmed that the replacement reflector posts opposite East Bilney Garage and sign at East Bilney opposite the bus shelter are programmed to be replaced. I reported to Breckland a dead deer on B1146 in Beetley and this was cleared quicker than the last time.

The Duck Race has been cancelled.
The Village Hall is closed.

As far as I can ascertain parishioners are looking after near neighbours.
