The Parish Council is responsible for ensuring that there are adequate grounds available for both formal and informal recreation.
The growth of the Parish over recent years and the planned and future development for housing have created increasing space for recreation.
At present the Council develops and maintains:
Hellesdon – Recreation Ground, off Wood View Road
Hellesdon – Meadow Way
The Council is likely to take responsibility for Mountfield Park (behind B&Q DIY Superstore)
It currently leases informal recreation grounds off the Reepham Road (near Arden Grove School) that is a continuation of land given over to allotments.
The future development of the Royal Norfolk Golf Club is likely to produce further informal and formal recreation space for Hellesdon residents.
Hellesdon Library will be increasing its opening hours from 17th June 2018
New Open Libraries technology will allow library members over the age of 16 to use the library during unstaffed hours, giving them an extra 36 hours to enjoy their local library.
Norfolk County Council has made a Temporary Traffic ORder affecting the Low Road from a distance 450 meters west of its junction with Wensum Valley Close for a distance of 60 meterers westwards, because of a new water connection.
