Colby & Banningham Parish Council

Colby & Banningham Parish Council serves the two villages of Colby & Banningham. There are 7 Councillors, all of whom represent the whole area – no wards. On behalf of the parish, the Council owns the Jubilee Hall, Banningham, Banningham Village Green, the Playing Field at Bridge Road Colby, 3 allotments and a piece of arable land behind, on Colby Road, and contributes to the maintenance of Colby and Banningham Churchyards as burial grounds. The Council was awarded Quality Parish Council status in June 2008 and successfully re-accredited in 2012.

Presentation and Interactive Map

We were pleased to welcome Susan Falch-Lovesey, Local Liaison Officer, to the Annual Parish Meeting on 21 March.

Susan gave us the latest information on the project and took questions.  Those that could not be answered on the night have been passed to the project team and any updates will be posted here as received.  

You can access the presentation here and it includes a link to an interactive map – you can click on areas on the map and it will give you more information.  Having tested it, I found it was easier to zoom in to the particular area of interest first as there’s a lot of information there.

Links on the various pages take you to the Vattenfall website with access to other documents, newsletters etc.



Village Hall and Playing Field Questionnaire

Hopefully every household will have received the latest newsletter – this included the questionnaire.

Please complete and return the questionnaire – your views, opinions and ideas are very important towards making the facilities appeal to everyone.
