County Councillor’s report:

As part of Norfolk County Councils (NCC) pledge to achieve net zero by 2030 we are urging councils and individuals to comment on the Transport for Norwich Strategy at www.norfolk.gov.uk/tfnstrategy running until 8th October 2021.  The Norfolk Strategic Flood Alliance has been allocated £695k for highways and ditch maintenance and an additional £395k for drainage asset improvement.  This should improve our drains and gullies around the County.  Currently NCC has an annual budget of £42m for Highways.  An additional £10m has been allocated for road maintenance over the next 4 years.  This will focus on potholes and road surfacing to prevent potholes.  An extra £1m will also be available for road safety schemes over the next 4 years.  NCC have been concerned about the declining uptake of apprenticeships over the last few years.  To address this we are working with schools, colleges and employers with some success.  Watch this space.

District Councillor’s Report 210701

County Councillor report:
Norfolk County Council (NCC) is asking parents, who are eligible, to register for free school meals before 21st July.  This will allow the children to have food vouchers over the summer holidays.  It will also help the school access additional funding to support the children through the Pupil Premium.

Norfolk carers are invited to apply for a Wellbeing Pack through Carers Matter Norfolk, I’m told the PPE is useful and the chocolates are very nice.  For more information go to: https://carersmatternorfolk.org.uk/free-wellbeing-packs/  or call 0800 0831148.

Ferrovial Construction have been awarded the contract to build the Norwich Western Link.  They are a leading international construction and engineering company.  Ferrovial will work alongside the project team at NCC, starting straight away.  For more information go to: www.norfolk.gov.uk/nwl

NCC are already looking at budgets for 2022/23.  There is a £39m funding gap which we are working with Central Government to address.  We are looking for better long term funding, particularly for Adult Social Care but also generally so that we can make long term decisions.
