Content and structure area

Scope and content

These volumes contain Norfolk County Council orders relating to a variety of matters including: creation of new Parish Councils; alteration of numbers of Rural District, Urban District and Parish Councillors; alteration of electoral divisions; designation of existing highways as new streets for purpose of application of bye-laws; traffic regulations; bye-laws as to petroleum filling stations; bye-laws as to wireless loudspeakers and gramaphone amplifiers; tree preservation orders; and compulsory purchase orders. Some orders include maps.

With the exception of the earliest, pre-March 1910 orders (in C/C 26/1), all the orders are signed and sealed . Many (but possibly not all) of these orders are bound in with the Council minutes of proceedings (see C/C 22).

Several dates appear on the orders: the date of the resolution of Norfolk County Council; the date of the affixing of the seal; and the date of the resolution of the Minister of Housing and Local Government. They are mostly filed by the latter date.
