Catfield is a village in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, situated approximately three miles from the market town of Stalham. The village is surrounded by agricultural land and areas of wetland adjoining both Barton and Hickling Broads. We have some of the most important wetlands in Western Europe and some very diverse and incredible wildlife.

Catfield has a range of amenities including a fantastic pub, church, school, village hall, Post Office and shop. There is also a light industrial estate which has amongst the businesses on the site; boat building and allied industry, car maintenance and restoration, an upholsterer and a printer.

There is a great sense of community in Catfield with a variety of groups to cater for many interests.

Ever wondered what your Parish Council is here to do?  The Parish Council is made up of 11 members who all live in or are local to Catfield and represent the village on various matters.  We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and North Norfolk District Council.

The Parish Council usually meet at 7pm on the first Wednesday of the month in the Village Hall.

The public is very welcome to attend and we encourage people to speak during the open forum which is part of each formal meeting.

Members of the public are welcome to audio or video record Parish Council meetings. Before doing so they should ask whether any members of the public object to having their faces recorded and should comply with any request not to do so. No oral commentary should be made on the proceeding, at the time of recording.

Parish Council meetings are audio recorded.  By speaking during the meeting, you are consenting to being audio recorded.

Audio Recording Disclaimer: The Parish Council takes no responsibility for views expressed by members of the public during recorded public meetings. Views expressed by individual councillors are not necessarily those of the Parish Council itself.
