You are cordially invited to the 1st Cawston Community Forum!

This is an event organised by Cawston Parish Council where local representatives have been invited to attend from the Consortium, County Council, Borough Council, Parish Council and Police. They will be acting as a panel to answer your questions on any topic covering Cawston.

The event will run on Monday the 5th of March at Cawston Community Hall from 19.30 – 21.00

We would like as many local residents to attend as possible. To get the maximum from the evening we would like to ask for as many questions in advance of the evening which we can ask to the panel as well as taking questions from attendees on the night.
If you have a question you would like to ask please email the Parish Clerk on the following address:
If that is not enough refreshments will also be provided on the night!
Your voice counts, please use this opportunity to ask the questions you want asking and we will do our best to get them answered.

Grit Bins – Update

We discussed the gritting situation at Tuesday’s parish council meeting and we agreed the following. Because of the road adoption issues we have to take two approaches to gritting. For those roads that are unadopted, we cannot provide grit or bins at the moment. The main reason for this is because WCC will not grit or provide grit to unadopted roads. Therefore we will be asking The Consortium to grit these roads when necessary until they are adopted. We would also encourage residents to keep a bag of their own grit in their garage or shed so that if we get any more situations like before, residents can use it to make the paths and roads outside their houses safer for everyone. We will be saying more on the topic of road adoption in a another announcement within the next day or two. As for the adopted roads, we have already started to discuss the placement of grit bins with WCC as their approval is needed before these bins can be installed. It is our intention to publish these draft plans here before they are formally agreed so that residents can raise any concerns. We shall post any significant updates to this website and the CPC Facebook page too. At the moment, we do not have any indication of the timescales involved, but when we know more, we will keep you informed.
