Bodham Parish Plan
Bodham Parish Plan 2010 has now been published and distributed throughout
the Parish with the February 2011 Newsletter.
The time, effort and dogged determination of three members of the original
steering committee, Peter Alexander, Harry Bruford and Peter Bedell, along
with Terry Linford and Tom Hewitt, has produced this document.
A tremendous amount of hard work has gone into producing the Bodham Parish
Plan but in essence this is really where the ‘real work' begins.
Copies of the Plan have been distributed to North Norfolk District Council,
Norfolk Rural Community Council, Broadland Housing Association and other
relevant bodies in the hope that this will open dialogues on local plans and
other issues and also produce more funding for local projects.
The following are comments on the recently distributed Parish Plan:
Thank you for my copy of the Bodham Parish Plan 2010.
Although long-awaited and involving many hours of work for a small group of
volunteers, the report is well worth the effort, because it provides
evidence that consulting the whole of the community about their wishes for
the village, and its facilities, has had many satisfactory outcomes already.
By my calculations at least a dozen
significant actions emerging from the consultation process have already been
initiated and more to come. Thank you again and congratulations..

I received my copy of the Parish Plan this morning and I was very impressed
with it. A
really professional publication and so comprehensive. I can fully understand
why it is a relief that its all over. Well done.
I wish to express our congratulations to all who took part in preparing and
publishing the Bodham Parish plan 2010. The amount of research and work put
into this publication is tremendous,. The end product is informative and
enlightening and extremely well
presented. You should all be proud of yourselves. CONGRATULATIONS
Hello, thank you for the plans they were on my desk when I returned from
I find the plan very informative and very well layed out. The ‘You, Your
Home and The Area’ (page 9) was particularly good.
I also was impressed by the visual aspect, lots of photographs and colours
I’ve just finished reading my copy of the Bodham Parish Plan 2010. It is
impressive. I was especially amazed at the 85% response rate to the
questionnaire which is exceptionally high and really added weight to the
entire document. The analysis was well presented and the amount of Actions
already Actioned is also amazing - this is a great
example to other villages about how a Parish Plan can be a tool to effect
positive changes if enough volunteers with enough energy are available - I
know it’s still work in progress but thank you Bodham for showing us it can
