We were pleased to be invited to meet recently with Councillor Alan Waters, Leader of Norwich City Council, which has recently agreed to allocate funding in the 2016-17 financial year to look at possible projects to improve Kett’s Heights. Alan recalled visiting the site in the 1980s, but hadn’t been recently. We were able to show him the work done recently by the Friends and the community payback teams, and he enjoyed being able to see the view all the way to City Hall. Kett’s Heights is one of the three strategic viewpoints designated by the Council to be taken into account when planning applications are considered. As the ward Alan represents starts at the top of Kett’s Hill, he has a local interest on behalf of his electors as well as the wider City Council.
