Drayton is one of the larger parishes in the Broadland District of Norfolk, approximately five miles from Norwich. Our population numbers around 5000, and the Parish Council has thirteen Councillors to serve the needs of the community. There are also numerous businesses in the village. We are well served by a number of bus routes directly into Norwich, and are only a short distance from Norwich Airport.
The Parish Council offices are located at the rear of the Pavilion building on King George V Playing Fields, Drayton High Road, and the office is open to the public from Monday to Thursday between 10.00am and 12.30pm. The Clerk is normally available outside of these times, however please call to make an appointment.
Drayton Parish Council administers two playing fields (King George the Fifth and Longdale) and the Florence Carter Memorial Park on School Road. We also liaise with both Broadland District Council and Norfolk County Council on matters such as Planning, Highways, and we have a good working relationship with Norfolk Police (we are a member of the Safer Neighbourhood Panel with other local parishes). Our Norfolk County Council representative is Tony Adams and we have two District Councillors, Roger Foulger (Drayton South) and Victor Ray-Mortlock (Drayton North).
