Parish boundary changes affecting Northrepps

North Norfolk District Council is carrying out a review of the boundary between Northrepps and Cromer. As a first step they are consulting with local residents. NNDC has written to all those who are affected but they have also sent me this letter with details about the process: Northrepps electoral review. These are the key paragraphs from the letter. If you want to have your say, please contact NNDC by 30th April:

This proposal will see properties which currently fall within the Northrepps Parish, in streets and developments before the railway bridge which are accessed off the A149 Norwich Road, be moved into the Cromer Town South Ward. The properties affected by this change are; Christophers Close, Finch Close, Nightingale Close, Bridge Terrace, and finally the remaining properties on Ridgeway and Stevens Road and some Norwich Road properties which do not already fall within the existing Cromer Town South Ward.

These proposals would have implications for residents in terms of both Council Tax parish precept and governance. The below table shows the difference of precept based on the current 2020/21 year for each property band:

Property Band Northrepps Parish precept Cromer Town precept
A £28.43 £63.28
B £33.17 £73.83
C £37.91 £84.37
D £42.65 £94.92
E £52.13 £114.56

In terms of governance, the affected electors will move from Northrepps Parish Council to Cromer Town Council. They will also be moved from the Poppyland district ward to the Cromer Town South ward in term of District governance and in respect of County Council governance from the Mundesley Division to the Cromer Division. The designated polling station would also change from Northrepps Village Hall to Merchants Place, Church Street, Cromer.

Any comments or representations in relation to this proposal can be made by completing the attached form and returning it to Electoral Services, North Norfolk District Council, Holt Road, Cromer, NR27 9EN in the enclosed freepost reply envelope or alternatively by emailing us at before this initial consultation closes on Friday 30th April 2021.
