Extract September 15

A meeting of Beetley Parish Council was held on Thursday 3rd September 2015 at Beetley Village Hall. There were present seven Parish Councillors one of whom, Councillor R Richmond, is also the District Councillor for Beetley Parish, County Councillor M Kiddle Morris, District Councillor R Duffield and sixteen parishioners.
Planning. Applications. No objection had been made to the addition of a first floor single storey extension, roof alterations and garage to front at Woods End 14 Elmham Road or to the single storey extension to front of the property at 9 Wood Drive.

Both of these applications had been received after the July meeting and circulated to all Councillors for their comments which had been forwarded to Breckland Council. An application had been received for the erection of seven dwellings with detached garages on land to the rear of The Paddocks and a lengthy discussion was held with the parishioners who attended because of their concerns and objections to the proposed development. The parishioners were informed at the meeting that the Parish Council is only a consultee and that the final decision rests with Breckland Council.

The Parish council decided to object to the application, which is very similar to an application in 2002 which was refused by Breckland Council and the appeal by the applicant was dismissed by the Planning Inspector. The development is outside the settlement boundary for Beetley and the Parish Council felt that the development would lead to increased traffic through The Paddocks to the detriment of the amenity of the residents. It was also felt that if any development was to occur in Beetley over the next twenty years as part of the Local Plan this should be on land with a road frontage and not to the rear of existing properties.

The District Councillor had requested that if permission is likely to be granted by the officers at Breckland Council this application should be referred to the Planning Committee and this had been agreed by the Chairman of that Committee. At this Committee meeting the Parish Council will be allowed to speak as will objectors to the application. The Parish Council will have three minutes to state their case and all the objectors have only three minutes between them. Decisions. Permission had been granted for the extensions and alterations to convert garage into annexe to dwelling at 22A Elmham Road, the addition of a first floor single storey extension, roof alterations and garage to front at Woods End 14 Elmham Road and for the single storey extension to front of the property at 9 Wood Drive.
Beetley River Meadows. A problem is still occurring with the depositing of dog waste in the standard litter bins.

Would dog owners please use the bins that are marked for dog waste. The Environment Agency had been contacted again about the weed growth in the river bordering the river meadows and it has confirmed that it will be carrying out spraying from Gressenhall Mill to the Holt Road road bridge. It is hoped that this will occur shortly.
Finance. The External Audit had been completed by Mazars LLP and no criticism had been raised over the accounts or the governance of the public funds.
Request for a Post Box.

Royal Mail collections have confirmed that it will consider the request for a new post box.
Meetings. The next meeting of Beetley Parish Council will be held on Thursday 1st October 2015 at 7.30 p.m. at the Village Hall, Beetley. Planning applications are available for viewing from 7.15 p.m.


The full minutes are available for viewing on the Beetley Parish website,, or by contacting the Clerk on 01362 861112 or

The developers of a popular gaming app with millions of users have announced a partnership with Norwich City FC.

A deal between a new sponsor of the Canaries and the creators of Best Fiends, a game which has been downloaded 15 million times worldwide, has been announced.

Mobile game developer Seriously will also launch a scheme with the football club called Coding for Kids, a programme which aims to educate young people about mobile technology.

David McNally, chief executive of Norwich City Football Club, said: This is a ground-breaking partnership, a first for us and indeed one of the first of its kind in the Premier League between a club and a leading mobile gaming provider.

We are really impressed with the energy and passion of Seriously and the tremendous impact their popular Best Fiends game is having around the world.

This substantial partnership with the club will help them to champion their great products to the Premier League and Norwich Citys massive global audience.

Meanwhile I hope as many City fans as possible will enjoy playing Best Fiends and come along to be part of the Coding For Kids event, which promises to be great fun.

Andrew Stalbow, co-founder and chief executive of Seriously, said: Norwich City Football Club has an extraordinary appeal worldwide with a passionate local fan base and a family-focused approach.

We are excited to work with a team that has similar values and aspirations as we continue to build our own local fan base for Best Fiends on a global scale.

The mobile game company launched its first app, Best Fiends, in October and since then the game has been downloaded millions of times with more than 1.3 million daily active players.

The company plans to release its second game in the trilogy later this year.

The popular game is touted as being the next Angry Birds, which is one of the most successful ever video games.
