Rural Communities

Elizabeth is a vocal supporter of rural communities, and some of the campaigns she has actively been involved in include supporting local residents and councilors in Welney for dot matrix signs to be installed to alert drivers of flooding on the Welney Causeway.

She is also working with the council and the Environment Agency to secure a long term solution to road closures on the causeway.

Elizabeth is also determined to see rural villages retain shops, small businesses, pubs, post offices, and have access to health care provision. She supported local residents in Shouldham when they led a community buy-out of the Kings Arms pub in the village. She worked with local councilors and residents in Terrington St John to ensure a GP surgery and pharmacy remained in the village.

Concerns have also be raised with Elizabeth about the relocation of the Post Office in Upwell and Elizabeth has maintained the pressure to ensure residents’ are listened to and the issues over parking and privacy are fully addressed.

Elizabeth has lobbied Norfolk County Council on behalf of residents in East Harling and Southery calling on the council for a review of the road hierarchy in Norfolk.

Elizabeth also champions the unique landscape of the Fens and Brecks and is keen to promote the area to a wider audience.
