Cars advertised for sale

We are aware that some people are advertising cars for sale along the verge of New Road.

Unfortunately there is no law to prevent this. Broadland District Council is monitoring the situation and has contacted some of the sellers to request that they find another way to sell the cars, but it is not illegal unless a seller is selling two cars within 500m of each other.

If you do see two cars for sale by the same seller, please send registration details to Jamie Henry at Broadland District Council at 01603 431133 or email at jamie.henry@Broadland.gov.uk,

Roadside scam

The following is a local policing update for the Acle neighbourhood


Weekly crime summary 30th January to 6th Febraury 2015

Police are urging motorists to be aware of a roadside scam involving men claiming to have broken down.

The warning follows a number of incidents in Norfolk and Suffolk this week whereby drivers have been flagged down by men from a supposedly broken down car.

Motorists are either asked for cash so they can purchase fuel, or offered jewellery in exchange for cash. The jewellery often appears to be low value – either cheap gold or polished metal – and not worth what they are asked to pay.

Officers are urging motorists to be vigilant and to report any similar incidents to police – using the 101 number for suspicious activity or 999 if you believe a crime is in progress.

Public toilets at Acle Bridge

You may have seen articles in the local press about the possible closure of Acle’s toilets.

Please note that this refers to the toilets at Acle Bridge, which are managed by Gt Yarmouth Borough Council, and not to the toilets in The Street which are managed by Broadland District Council and Acle Parish Council.
