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
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. Carolyn Heydon (who
started us off in the first place)

work put into this publication is tremendous,. The end product is
informative and enlightening and extremely well presented. You should

I’ve just finished reading my copy of the Bodham Parish Plan 2010. It is
very very 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
