An old out-of-town lodge has been sold, subject to contract, in order to release cash for Cromer Town Council.

An offer for Cemetery Lodge, near the entrance of Cromer Cemetery on Holt Road, was accepted by the council last week.

It was made by a family from Norwich but it is not known when they will move in.

The building was put on the market for £250,000 five weeks ago.

The three-bedroomed home, called Sextons Cottage, was owned by the council and rented out by one family for several decades.

One of the inhabitants used to work on the cemetery, which is owned by the council.

But three years ago the family moved out of the building, which needs a lot of refurbishment.

Council clerk Julie Chance drew up three options for the building which were refurbish the building and let it out again; sell it; or sell off part of the large garden as a building plot.

She said councillors agreed to put the lodge on the market earlier this year because of other projects which needed funding and organising.

The money from the sale will go towards other council schemes and ideas.

■ Council members will receive a update on Cabbell Park from Steve Blatch, from North Norfolk District Council, at the public planning committee meeting on October 9.

It will be held at North Lodge at 7pm.
