Be better prepared for any emergencies


Watton Town Council is following the

Government Advice regarding the coronavirus pandemic:


THE TOWN COUNCIL BEGAN TO HOLD ZOOM VIRTUAL MEETINGS ON 23.06.20 AND IS CONTINUING TO DO SO –  agendas can be seen on the agendas page.

 The Town Council is still working on behalf of the residents of Watton and please continue to contact the Town Council Office by email or phone.

Town Councillors are corresponding with staff and each other by holding regular Zoom Catch-Up meetings. Matters can be discussed and actions sanctioned. Delegation to the staff has been extended during this time of restricted activities to allow the Council to function and fulfil its legal responsibilities.
The Council also continues to consider planning applications received for consultation and comments are passed to Breckland District Council as the Local Planning Authority.

Please note due to current government guidelines relating to holding large gatherings Watton Town Council is very disappointed that it is felt necessary to cancel the 2020 Fireworks Evening.

It is hoped the 2020 Festive Market can go ahead on November 29th in some way, but this is likely to be a much smaller event than in the last years. More news to follow once decisions on the format of the day have been made.



Please note:

The Watton Town Council Office is closed to the Public until further notice.

Staff are working from home and will answer the telephone and respond to emails.

We trust you will understand that to ensure the continued running of the Council this is an essential step.

As normal, contact details are:
