The best way to explore the Quiet Lanes that criss-cross this picturesque area is either by bicycle or, to really get the most from the beautiful views and the clean fresh air, on foot.
Knapton Parish Council
Made up entirely of parishioners, the Parish Council is the first tier of local government for the parish of Knapton in North Norfolk, a rural area centred on the village of Knapton. Seven Councillors are elected, or co-opted, every four years to represent the interests of their fellow residents of the village. The Council meets most months on the first Tuesday of the month in Knapton Village Hall to discuss the operation and upkeep of Parish Council facilities, as well providing representation on a variety of other local issues.
Parish Councillors are volunteers and come from various backgrounds. Each year the Council elects a Chairman and Vice-Chairman to oversee the conduct of meetings. The Council employs a Parish Clerk whose primary role is to advise the Councillors, report on activities, produce minutes of the meetings, deal with correspondence and maintain the Council’s finances.
Anyone interested in becoming a Parish Councillor should contact the Parish Clerk to ascertain whether there are any vacancies and to check out the North Norfolk District Council website for more details. The next Parish Council Elections will be held in May, 2023.
