Services and Amenities

Ever wondered what your Town Council is here to do?  We are directly responsible for:

Allotments

We look after 7 allotment sites around the town. Take a look at the Allotments page for more details on where they can be found, and how to apply for one.

You can find more details about the Dereham and District Allotments and Gardeners Society by visiting their website.

Bishop Bonners Cottage

Originally three cottages, Bishop Bonners Cottage is the oldest surviving domestic building in Dereham. We are the Trustees of the museum, which is run by the Dereham Antiquarian Society. For more information on the museum, visit their website

Cemeteries

The cemetery on Cemetery Road is now near to capacity. A new site on Norwich Road was opened by Councillor Robert Hambidge on 19 April 2018. It’s leaf inspired design was created by Jeremy Stacey Architects. 

 

Although burials no longer take place there, we maintain the closed churchyard around St Nicholas Church.

See the Cemetery Page for more information.

Our non-profit car sharing scheme, run in conjunction with Breckland Council, providing transport for people in the town who would otherwise be unable to make essential journeys. See the Community Car Scheme page for more information.
