The Parish Council

Ever wondered what your Parish Council is here to do?  The Parish Council is made up of 11 councillors who all live in Hemsby and represent the village on various matters.  We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

We are currently collating the footpaths and bridle ways in the village. If anyone has any old maps or evidence of these please contact the clerk on 01493 719235. Many thanks Elaine

      Hi Donato May I suggest you use Facebook – perhaps Hemsby Local Chat or Hemsby’s Voice – There is probably a greater readership than this website.

    I nearly had a driving accident when visiting Hemsby. I have had a clean licence for more than 50 years. This near miss was due to the disgraceful marking on the roundabout. I only know of one in the Town. I am a R.A.F. Veteran and was trying to find my way to a Chalet which the R.A.F. Rent to Veterans, I was looking for Beech Road! Can someone do something about this please?

      Hello Francis, Many thanks for contacting the Parish Council. I am sorry to hear of your near miss. The road markings are due to be updated. We are awaiting NCC to do this – the request was put in during July.

    How/where can I view the minutes of the meetings? The links toAgenda and Minutes under the Meetings heading do not appear to work.


    • hemsby says:

      Hi Ann,

      Apologies for the delay in getting back to you – I’ve had a few days leave. If you clikc on the heading Meetings and then minutes, another page should load. You then need to click on the Minutes2018 heading on this new page.Another page should load giving you access to all the minutes so far this year. You wull need to click on the minutes you are interested in – a link to these will open in a new page. On clicking again you will be asked if you want to open or save the file. I hope that helps – any problems feel free to contact me. Best wishes Elaine

    Hi Elaine,

    Thanks for your response.

    I had been clicking on the Meetings heading to try to access the minutes, but the links were not working and nothing has changed.

    When I click on the Meetings heading, the drop down menu appears with links for Agenda, Minutes, Police Reports and County Councillor Report. However clicking on any of these drop down options has no effect, the Meetings page simply reloads.

    Can you check if the links have been disabled?


    • hemsby says:

      Hi Ann,
      I’m sorry you are having difficulties Ann. I have checked again today as I have just published the draft minutes for our last meeting. Nothing appears disabled and it all works fine from this end. I’ll see if I can get someone else to check on another PC.
      Best wishes


      PS In the meantime I can always email you any minutes you might like to see? Please let me know
