Welcome to the latest edition of Your Norfolk – the first since I became leader of Norfolk County Council in June.
I’ve been a county councillor for Blofield and Brundall since 2009 and was also leader of Broadland District Council for seven years, so I’m very familiar with Norfolk’s key issues.
This edition will give you a flavour of what we want to achieve and examples of how the County Council is working to improve people’s lives.
I’m determined that we care for our county, manage our money carefully, ensure we look after vulnerable people and help communities to help themselves. It’s vital that we continue to grow the local economy, which helps to grow the national economy.
I’m proud of Norfolk and I believe that there’s great potential for it to become even more prosperous and successful, working with our communities and partners and the business community.
One pleasure of this job is meeting people and finding out what matters to you. Check our website for more details of when I’m going to be out and about.
Cllr Andrew Proctor
Leader of Norfolk County Council
