There are three tiers of local Government, each with different responsibilities.

The Town Council works with Breckland District Council and Norfolk County Council 

Council News:

Following the successful installation of the new equipment for younger children at the Bridle Road Play Area the Town Council has received s106 funding to provide further facilities for the older age group at the site. The Town Council would like to enhance the area to cater for all family members. Bridle Road Open Space is already a lovely area for families to visit but it could be even better! More information to follow asap.
