Members at Breckland Council decided this morning to delay a decision on plans for the facility at the Croxton Road end of Joe Blunt’s Lane after saying they did not have enough information.

Councillors said they needed clarity on whether there was a permanent right of way on an access path to the park.

Paul Jackson, planning manager, said members should return to the meeting with “all their questions answered”.

The meeting had previously heard from Robert Kybird, in his role as Breckland Guildhall ward representative, Corrinne Fulford, on behalf of Thetford Town Council, the applicants, and Robert King, chairman of Croxton Parish Council.

Mr King said the parish council objected to the scheme due to fears over emergency access to the site and the potential effectiveness of proposed CCTV security coverage.

Further objections had already been raised by Thetford Academy principal, Adrian Ball, with the proposed park lying adjacent to the school.
