Recently a decision was made to change ward boundaries which resulted in Swardeston becoming part of the new Mulbarton and Stoke Holy Cross ward.
A community governance review is now underway from 20 March until February 2018. This review could change your parish boundary and you can make your views known byt completing the survey.
More details is available on the South Norfolk Council website at https://www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/boundary-and-polling-station-reviews#open

The parish council held an extraordinary meeting on 6th April 2017 which was attended by representatives from Highways England. Attendees raised their concerns about the potential re connection of Cantley Lane and Cantley Lane South and the problems it would likely cause due to increased flow of traffic.
A suggestion was put forward by 2 residents for an alternative to enable traffic to access Norwich which solve many local issues and give direct access for the commercial vehicles in Station Lane to access Norwich much more easily saving them time and money. The result would be that Cantley Lane South would become a dead end or cul-de-sac. Pedestrian access would need to be maintained via a footbridge and additional access was requested to the Park and Ride site for the residents of Cantley Lane.
The proposed scheme to access the A11 from an interchange at Station Lane is available to view below
