Local Police Inspector

The following is a Police Connect message.
I am Lisa Hooper and I am one of the two Local Policing Inspectors for the Broadland District. I am based at Sprowston and I am responsible for the delivery of local policing to the communities of Sprowston, Old Catton, Acle, Wroxham, Blofield, Brundall, Lingwood, Rackheath and of course all the smaller villages around them!

I have been a police officer for 21 years, and have prior to coming to Broadland I had been the Local Policing Inspector for Norwich City Centre, Thorpe Hamlet and Mile Cross. I have only recently moved out of the Broadland area myself, and most of my family live here so I know it well, and it is important to me that local communities are very satisfied with the policing they receive.

Broadland is home to around 126,000 people and my mission is to ensure you receive a first class service when you need us, and also to make sure we are dealing with the local issues which cause you the most concern. We have Safer Neighbourhood Action Panels covering every town and village, so there is always an opportunity for people to get in touch with us and tell us about the things that are happening locally so that we and our partners can work together to ensure Broadland remains one of the safest and happiest places to live in the UK. If you want to get in touch with us you can email us at SNTSprowston@norfolk.pnn.police.uk, SNTThorpeStAndrew@norfolk.pnn.police.uk and SNTAcle@norfolk.pnn.police.uk You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter @BroadlandPolice or you can call 101 and ask to speak to Engagement Officer PC Andy Mason or the local Beat Manager

Extension to footpath closure at boat dyke

BESL have been monitoring the ground conditions and establishment of grass on the floodbank. Grass is starting to regrow, but it is still not at a sufficient level to allow the reopening of the footpath. Therefore, BESL have recently received an extension to the original footpath closure to allow continued closure until the 28th July 2017. It is anticipated that by this date the grass growth will be sufficient to allow full reopening of the footpath. This date has been chosen to allow the opening to coincide with the start of the school holidays and associated increase of demand on the footpath.

 It is necessary to maintain the closure to allow successful re-establishment of the floodbank in order to minimise the risk of damage occurring and to prevent a reduction in the standard of flood defence protection afforded by the bank as well as a reduction in the quality of the footpath surface. Our previous experiences in similar situations has shown us that if the footpath is reopened too soon, then the pedestrian traffic can cause serious damage to occur on the crest of the floodbank, which can lead to the need for further closures to allow time consuming and costly remediation works to be undertaken.
