NORFOLK POLICE & CRIME COMMISSIONER – ANNUAL BUDGET CONSULTATION (January 2020)
Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner has launched his annual budget consultation setting out the challenges facing policing in the county and seeking residents’ views on how best to meet them.
During his fourth year of delivering his ambitious Police and Crime Plan for Norfolk PCC Lorne Green is now asking the public if they would be prepared to pay extra in a bid to build a safer and more resilient Norfolk – or prefer no rise at all.
The PCC is required by law to set the budget for Norfolk Constabulary and as part of this, decide how much the Norfolk public contributes to the policing element of Council Tax they pay. To inform this decision, each year Lorne has consulted with people across the county on whether or not this should increase.
This year’s consultation will run from today Monday 16 December until Friday 17 January 2020 and will see Lorne touring the county to seek the views of Norfolk residents.

Message received from East Ely Team, East Anglia Area, of the Environment Agency dated 28th September 2018
“Officers from our team have visited residents and the Glazewing site on 17, 24 and 29 September in respect of the increase in flies in the area.
We confirmed on 17 September that there was an issue with flies on the Glazewing site have required the company to take action to address the issue by spraying insecticides and ceasing accepting a certain type of waste which has attracted the flies. Our inspection today, 29 September, has noted a decrease in the number of flies on the site indicating that the measures they are now employing are being effective. However, as flies are in the wider environment around West Dereham it may take a little while before a decrease in their numbers is seen.
We will continue to monitor the situation and visit the area and Glazewing site to ensure that the situation is improving.”
