History[edit] The district was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972. It was a merger of Cromer
Urban District, North Walsham Urban District, Sheringham
Urban District, Wells-next-the-Sea
Urban District, Erpingham
Rural District, Smallburgh
Rural District, and Walsingham
Rural District. The district was originally to be called Pastonacres, but changed its name by resolution of the council and permission of the Secretary of State for Environment before it formally came into existence on 1 April 1974.[2] It is home to the Sheringham
Little Theatre. Politics[edit] See also: North Norfolk
local elections Elections to the district council are held every four years, with all of the 48 seats on the council up for election every fourth year. The Council is run by a Conservative administration, the Conservative party having gained a majority of 8 seats at the 2011 elections, which they increased to 18 at the 2015 elections. However, a series of subsequent by-elections[3] and defections[4] has put the council under No overall control. The council had previously been under Liberal Democrat control from 2003. In the 2015 elections, the Conservatives won a second successive term after more than doubling their majority to 18. The district is run using the Leader and Cabinet model used by the majority of councils in England and Wales: the current Leader is Tom FitzPatrick, councillor for Walsingham
Ward. Following the United Kingdom
