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.
|Telecommunications Mast - Survey and Application|
After the public meeting on 15th July, councillors carried out a survey to find out residents' views about the proposed mobile phone mast. A total of
320 people replied, with 88% in favour of the proposal and 12% against.
With this clear mandate, the Parish Council agreed that Arqiva could go ahead and apply for planning permission.
The application is now with the Borough Council, reference number 15/01200/F. If anyone wishes to comment on this application, they can contact the Borough Council Planning Department -

|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.
The Lynn News reported on Friday 3rd April that the developers had withdrawn their application for a poultry farm in Sedgeford. 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.
New River Walk
|A group of intrepid walkers met on Sunday 8th March to walk a new concessionary path. This circular path, which follows the river for part of its route, has been opened to Sedgeford residents on Sundays between February and July, courtesy of Ken Hill Estates and the Norfolk Rivers Trust. Maps were circulated with the March newsletter: please note that there will be cattle in the fields for much of this time, so dogs are not permitted.|

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.
