Sedgeford has a reputation for being one of the friendliest villages in Norfolk. It is situated within a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The village is just minutes away from the sea and some of the most stunning beaches in the UK. Sedgeford is surrounded by open undulating countryside, is rich in history. It's a great place to visit and with only 600 residents it's an idyllic place to live and work.
|Proposed Chicken Farm at Sedgeford|
Nearly 80 local residents attended the Parish Council meeting on 18th March to express their concerns about proposals to construct a poultry unit in the village. After listening to their views and taking account of additional information available, councillors voted to rescind their earlier approval for these plans and send a letter of objection to the Borough Council's planning department.
Details of the plans can be found on the KL&WN Borough Council website and comments will be accepted until 7th April
An article about the application appeared in the EDP on 19th March:
Update 6th April

A letter confirming this was posted on the Borough Council's website on Wednesday 1st April. The applicants intend to outline their proposals for greater community engagement during the coming weeks.

Open Gardens 2014
|Garden enthusiasts came from near and far to view the ten gardens open this year, from surrounding villages and also from across East Anglia and the Midlands, several visiting this area for the first time. After a very wet Saturday, we were fortunate that Sunday stayed fine and dry, so visitors could enjoy strolling round the village and sitting outside with teas, home-made cakes and ice-creams. Lunches in the Church proved as popular as ever and there was a variety of crafts and produce on sale.|
The photos below show scenes from some of the gardens which were open this time.
