Welcome to the website for Strumpshaw Parish Council, incorporating the villages of  Buckenham and Hassingham.

Strumpshaw is located on the northern bank of the River Yare around 6 miles (9.7 km) south-east of Norwich.  The name Strumpshaw may derive from the old english meaning 'stump grove' which could refer to a small wood.

Parish councils are the first level of local government and the closest to the community they serve. Parish council meetings are open to the public and there is a public forum at the beginning of each meeting for members of the public to put questions to the parish council.

We're responsible for:


  • Allotments

  • Buckenham Wood

  • Stone Pit

  • Bus shelter

  • Litter and dog bins at Buckenham Wood and Mill Road

  • Commenting on planning applications

  • The village notice boards

We have a vacancy on the Parish Council for a parish councillor.

Becoming a parish councillor is a rewarding and valued form of public service. Councillors contribute to the work of the Parish Council by:

  • Having a say about the things they care about

  • Putting forward ideas for better services

  • Responding to the needs and views of parishioners

  • Seeking the best outcome to local issues

  • Getting involved in decision making

  • Helping to make Strumpshaw, Buckenham and Hassingham a better place to live!


We normally meet bimonthly on the third Tuesday. Meetings commence at 7:30pm, lasting around 2 hours and are held at the community hall. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.

If you are interested, we would love to hear from you.  Contact the Clerk  to find out more.
