The Conservatives have flatly turned down a way forward to establish a minority Conservative administration at Norfolk County Hall, even though it was supported in principle by all the other parties. They refused to accept a return to the more democratic committee system of decision-making.

Share your views on council responsiveness to residents
The Green Party has launched a survey asking Norwich residents about their experiences of communicating with the City Council. The survey asks people if they have contacted the council in the last year and, if so, how soon they received a reply and whether they were happy with how the council responded to their enquiry.
Caroline Brimblecombe, Green Party Councillor for Wensum ward, said: “Residents frequently complain that the council doesn’t respond adequately to their enquiries. Sometimes people receive no reply and sometimes the action that is promised doesn’t happen.
“We are running this survey to collect information about how widespread the problems are and how they vary according to the method of communication. As opposition councillors we will use this information to challenge the council to improve its response rates and be clear that the council’s main duty is to serve the public.”
To take part in the survey please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (01603) 613806/07808 236483.
Norfolk County Council is raiding its own budgets to spend millions on a road around the city.
