Project Update – Beeston Hills

STC purchased the site in order to protect this valuable asset as a Putting Green for generations to come.

Sheringham Town Council now own the Putting Green at Beeston Hills and have started to undertake works ready for the 2024 season ahead.

You will have already noticed that the old hut has been demolished and we plan to site a temporary hut for this season so that the greens can be opened from the May bank holiday.

A full planning application has been approved for a brand new permanent building (PF/23/2578) planned to be sited after this season has ended.

A new entrance gate and perimeter fencing will be installed soon and work is already underway on the outfields and greens.

More updates will follow soon.

Sports Pavilion – Consultation

PUBLIC CONSULTATION – SPRING 2024

This public consultation will seek to obtain feedback from residents and visitors, to understand and incorporate their voices in the decision-making process as we review potential improvements to the Sports Pavilion at Weybourne Road. This Consultation is being undertaken as a statutory requirement, as Sheringham Town Council does not currently hold the “General Power of Competence”.  This means that any activities or changes which will have a need for a large investment, require input from Consultees. Careful consideration will be given to the responses provided, and these will be used to shape the regeneration plans.

An eight-week consultation period will commence from 4th March and run until 28th April 2024.

Consultation methods will be undertaken by electronic surveys, face to face stakeholder pop up events, paper surveys available in public spaces and adverts in local publications.  For those who prefer they can obtain assistance via the Officers of the Council and provide their answers over the telephone or in person at the Council Offices.  We will also send 100 postal surveys to randomly selected residents from the Electoral Roll.

As well as gaining information in relation to the consultation itself, we will gather information which identifies representation in those responding. We will aim to identify Older people (over 60), younger people (under 25), 26 – 59 age group, faith groups, residents, visitors, people from different ethnic backgrounds and those with disabilities.  We will not collect data which will identify individuals.  Sheringham Town Council will store this data securely and use it only to make a judgement about representativeness.

Results of the consultation and data regarding representativeness will be published our website and publicly available upon request.

An evaluation of the consultation will also be undertaken to measure its effectiveness and if changes are required for any future consultations.

The process adopted has be created using guidance from the Local Government Association.  https://www.local.gov.uk/our-support/communications-and-community-engagement/resident-communications/understanding-views-2#:~:text=Best%20practice%20suggests%20you%20should,statutory%20consultation%20has%20specific%20rules). We have also utilised MRS guidance – https://www.mrs.org.uk/pdf/2014-09-01%20Questionnaire%20Design%20Guidelines.pdf

Memorial & Dedication Benches

The removal and replacement of the benches that Sheringham Town Council own around the town and commons is now complete. The ‘Man-made-timber’ benches are made from Enviropol material which is recycled plastic that is 100% re-recyclable when it reaches the end of its service life and each bench is made up of a combination of carrier bags, pots, tubs and trays, a large majority of which are single-use plastics. STC are proud to have played a part in reducing the amount of plastic that could have gone into our oceans and will continue to look for ways to reduce single use plastic whenever we can.

STC understands and respects the wishes of its residents to remember loved ones through a variety of memorials. If you are interested in dedicating a bench and would like to know more, please get in touch or fill out an application form.
