© 2017 Coltishall Parish Council

Welcome to Coltishall


Coltishall is situated nine miles north east of Norwich on the River Bure, gateway to the Norfolk Broads. In addition to its beautiful river frontage, part of the Broads Authority, it has wide expanses of common land managed by the Coltishall Commons Management Trust, and much of the village itself is a conservation area.

The Parish Council


The Parish Council consists of up to 11 members who all live in or near Coltishall and Gt Hautbois and represent the parish on various matters.  We are effectively the third tier of local government below County and District Councils. We meet at 6.30 pm usually on the second Tuesday of the month at the Church Rooms, Rectory Road, Coltishall.
