Norfolk Coast parishes
There are 68 parishes whose boundaries lie partly or wholly within the AONB designation. It is the diverse character of our small towns and villages which helps to make parts of the area so distinctive - the variety of vernacular architecture, individual buildings, settlement patterns and how these relate to the wider landscape. Their communities are also distinctive, with their own local traditions, customs and festivals.
This page contains links to more detailed information about AONB parishes and town / parish councils.
Parishes have either Town/Parish Council or Parish Meetings with a clerk to the council, some larger councils having their own office that is open to the public. Many parishes or groups of parishes have excellent newsletters and an increasing number have their own websites, providing useful information about their local settlements and communities. Parish councils increasingly have their own or a page on village websites enabling parishioners and the general public to view council agendas and minutes, and who the councillors are and their role.
