Next Parish Council Meeting
January Meeting Cancelled
Re-scheduled for February, date to be confirmed
Dear Parish Council Members,
I wanted to express appreciation and gratitude for the memorial you dedicated to the eight airmen killed as a result of the plane crash in 1944. While doing some genealogy research ,I discovered the web page devoted to your efforts to honor the crew members that died in North Tuddenham during WW2. I spoke today with the nieces of “Robbie” Norrell. Robbie was my mother’s first Cousin. His death left heartbroken family members who we only wished could have known the lasting memorial you all created. Please extend our thanks to the people of Tuddenham from the Shea and Norrell descendents in the United States.

Norwich Western Link
Earlier this year we carried out a public consultation which established there was very strong support for creating a new link between the A47 and Broadland Northway (formerly Northern Distributor Road), with the majority of those responding suggesting a new road as their preferred solution.
The shortlisted options, from west to east, are:
- Option A – a 7.2 mile single carriageway upgrade to the B1535 and A1067, linking to the A47 at the Wood Lane junction north of Honingham. This option would significantly realign the current B road, smoothing it out to make it a higher standard route. The route would join the A1067 via a new junction at Lenwade and make use of the existing bridge across the River Wensum at Attlebridge.
It is predicted this route would carry around 10,000 vehicles a day by 2040. The estimated cost is £60 million.
- Option B – a new dual carriageway route and dual carriageway upgrade of the A1067 totalling 5.2 miles, with the new route to the east of Weston Longville and linking to the A47 at Wood Lane. At the northern end of this route, two alternatives are given for how it could join the A1067. One would be via a new junction near Attlebridge which would include widening the existing River Wensum bridge at Attlebridge. The other would see a new 660 metre viaduct crossing of the Wensum created, joining the A1067 further to the east.
It is predicted this route would carry around 30,000 vehicles a day by 2040. The estimated cost is £155 million based on the viaduct alternative as this has a higher cost.
- Option C – a new dual carriageway route and dual carriageway upgrade of the A1067, linking to the A47 at Wood Lane and totalling 3.9 miles. Around 350 metres of the A1067 would be dualled before a new junction would take the route between Weston Longville and Ringland, crossing the River Wensum on a 720 metre-long viaduct.
It is predicted this route would carry around 32,000 vehicles a day by 2040. The estimated cost is £153 million.
- Option D – a new dual carriageway route and dual carriageway upgrade of the A1067 totalling 3.6 miles. The route is similar to Option C at its northern end, however it then runs to the west of Ringland and links to the A47 further east at the junction with Taverham Road. Around 400 metres of the A1067 would be dualled before a new junction would take the route between Weston Longville and Ringland, crossing the River Wensum on a 660 metre-long viaduct, then turning more to the south and crossing the River Tud on a second viaduct, this one 120 metres long, before it meets the A47.
It is predicted this route would carry around 31,000 vehicles a day by 2040. The estimated cost is £161 million.
Councillors on Norfolk County Council’s Environment, Development and Transport Committee will be asked to give their approval of this shortlist and proceed with a public consultation on them between 26 November 2018 and 18 January 2019.

Use it or Lose it!
The clothing bank, which is in the car park at the Lodge, generates an income of approximately £200 for every ton of clothing deposited in it.
As only half a ton of clothing was put there last year we will lose it unless there is more support.
The clothing is sorted and anything of reasonable quality will be re-used by charities, either at home or abroad. Nothing is wasted!
This is a useful source of income for the Parish Council and is used to help to reduce the precept.
