Bradwell’s centre is located about four miles from the centre of Gt Yarmouth, on the south side of the River Yare. It is a large village of some 14,000 residents which has seen a great deal of housing development over the past 30-40 years, and it includes much of the Gapton Hall Industrial Estate. However, there is still a substantial amount of farmland in the village, and also the small hamlet of Hobland.
This website is designed to enable Bradwell’s parishioners to find out what is going on in their village, and to provide information to anyone with an interest in the area. Bradwell Parish Council has responsibility for a number of amenities within the village, and will make representations to the Borough Council, County Council, Police and others to secure improvements to services within the village.
The Parish Council’s base is the Leo Coles Pavilion, located on the Green Lane Playing Field site. This building is accessible with ramp and disabled toilet. Its committee meetings take place there, and the clerk’s office is situated there. the Clerk is currently mostly working from home, but the office is manned Thursdays 10am – 2pm for residents questions.
Watch the noticeboards – on outside wall of Leo Coles Pavilion; on outside wall of brick bus shelter opposite the Sun Inn, Beccles Road; at Tesco, Morrison and Mill Lane playing field.
You can also find agendas for any meetings happening within the next few days, nearly all of which are open for the public to attend, on this website. You can also find minutes for council and committee meetings which have taken place site.
The council publishes a twice-yearly newspaper, “The Bradwellian”, which is delivered to every household in Bradwell (over 5,800!) by our team of volunteers. This website is designed to complement the information provided within The Bradwellian with regular updates.
