Councillors and Useful Contacts

 

Councillors give their time voluntarily as it is an unpaid role. By becoming a parish councillor you become someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support – a community leader with the power to influence decision, work alongside other agencies and local government, create a strategy and deliver plans for the benefit of the parish you live in. The Parish Council of Walsoken is currently made up of 10 Councillors and they are:

PLANNING

For all planning-related enquiries and concerns the first point-of-call should always be the relevant local authority. In Walsoken, for Norfolk-based applications, this will be the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk.

Please click the following link to access the BCKLWN’s planning information.

https://www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/info/20000/planning_and_development

Due to the village straddling county boundaries, some Cambridgeshire applications may be of relevance or concern to Walsoken Parish residents. The CCC planning information is available here:

http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/info/20099/planning_and_development/234/planning/4

Generally, Walsoken Parish Council does not discuss planning applications or their progress in detail at scheduled meetings. However, every publicised meeting allows for attendance and comment by members of the public. Please contact our Clerk, Claire Lilley, for more information or if you would like to raise a matter in person.
