Neighbourhood Plan meeting 8th August at 2pm
The Tour de Broads through Reedham
On Sunday 21st August the annual Tour de Broads cycle sportive will be pedalling their way through Reedham and stopping at the village hall for refreshments. It is anticipated there will be around 150 cyclists stopping at the village hall, and about 350 more just cycling through the village. They will be there between 08:40 and 11:30, all cycling in small groups and enjoying the countryside views.
Please note, this is not a race and there are no closed roads. Riders will be cycling along the Freethorpe Road toward Reedham, will turn into Pottles Lane, Witton Green, The Havaker, then onto Station Road, along Riverside then leave the village on Mill Rd. Maps of the route and route through Reedham can be found below.
Sadly, Reedham is historically a village where the signage has been removed or tampered with in the past. The event has been approved by Broadland & South Norfolk Safety Advisory Group and GYBC have been advised. The organisers have applied for and received permission from Norfolk Highways to place the signage along the roads.
Signs will be erected from Thursday 18th August. All signage will be removed by the end of Monday 22nd.
The event is fully supported, risk assessed & insured and this year the charity partner is Nelsons Journey.
It would be great if Reedham could support the cyclists on their 100 mile ride – all raising funds and awareness for a worthwhile charity.

The mostly off-road and generally quite flat terrain, make this a great choice for beginner and experienced runners alike.

Neighbourhood Plan: Call for Sites
Reedham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is carrying out a Call for Sites for Affordable Housing and Green Space.
A call for sites was undertaken for the Greater Norwich Local Plan in 2016. As part of this, 2 sites were promoted in Reedham, land to the east of Station Road and land at Mill Road, both of which have been allocated in the emerging local plan.
Reedham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is undertaking a further ‘Call for Sites’ just for the Reedham parish area to identify available sites that can be considered specifically for affordable housing growth (with an element of market housing) and/or a central green space.
The central green space envisioned could include room for a Village Green, or informal open grassland, or formal Garden Park or landscaped area, or a mixture of any of them.
The Site Submission Form for completion by any interested parties who want to promote a site for a specific use or development to be allocated in the Reedham Neighbourhood Plan can be found here: 2022 Reedham Call for Sites
The closing date for submissions is 15th July 2022.
