Denton Changing Shape?
As notified earlier in the year, South Norfolk Council, as part of their on-going Governance Review, have been considering requests for changes to parish boundaries. Denton PC put in a bid for adjusting our boundary with Earsham and this, with the support of our District Councillor, Murray Gray, has now been approved by the relevant SNC committee.
The PC had suggested that five properties currently in Earsham should be moved into Denton. Further details, and a map showing the proposed new boundary, can be seen on the
The properties involved are on Danacre, Middle and Denton Roads. The last will presumably be at least partially renamed if the boundary change goes through!
The next stage in the process will be a period of public consultation from 31/8 until 27/10. Everyone is encouraged to join in but we gather that Earsham PC are not objecting to the change. The final act will be seeking the approval of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.
UPDATEFurther research has now revealed that eight properties would be involved if the proposal is approved. They are:
- Danacre Road - Wash Cottage,
- Middle Road - High Green Farm, Little Green Farm, Jack Ansell Cottages x 2,
- Denton Road - Parrs Farm, Parrs Farm Annex, White House Farm.
