Trunch Parish Council

Welcome to Trunch Parish Council

Trunch Parish Council has TWO vacancies

If you are interested in getting involved in the decisions made for your village please send your expressions of interest to the Clerk by the deadline of Friday 24th May 2019. Interviews will be held prior to the Meeting on Wednesday 5th June 2019 and the successful candidates will be co-opted onto the Parish Council at the July meeting.


The First Draft of the Local Plan (Part 1) concerning housing development in North Norfolk between now and 2036 has been issued for consultation and we have until the 19th June 2019 to make comments. Only the proposed development in large and small growth towns and large growth villages is covered in the Plan (Part 1). We know that a large development of houses is planned for North Walsham. Trunch is classified as a small growth village and any proposed development will be covered by Part 2 of the Local Plan to be issued in October 2019. However, under Part 1 of the Plan, the North Norfolk District Council are seeking to identify available sites in small growth villages for small scale development (0.25 and 1 hectare in size). Details of the Local Plan can be found at

The North Norfolk District Council’s Planning Policy Manager, Mark Ashwell, is attending the Parish Council meeting on 5th June 2019 to discuss the issues raised in the Local Plan and how it may impact on Trunch. If you have an interest in the Council’s plans for housing development in Trunch you are urged to attend so that we can respond to NNDC with your comments.

The Trunch Parish Council meeting will be held on Wednesday 5th June at 7.30pm in the Methodist Church Community Room.

All Parish Council meetings are open for residents of Trunch to attend. Please do come along.


Clerk: Julie Chance
