Attleborough Town Council considers hedge at remembrance garden and town car parking

Imposing a time limit for parking or having paid parking meters could be the eventual outcome of an Attleborough Town Council proposal to lease the central Queens Square car park.
At a meeting at the town hall, councillors decided to ask Breckland Council if they would be willing to lease the car park to the town council or allow them to manage the car park on the district council's behalf.
It's currently free to park at Queens Square without restrictions, but councillors hope some kind of regulation - possibly a three-hour time limit - would stop the car park from filling up and encourage more people to drive into the town to visit shops and businesses.
District councillor Adrian Stasiak, who was at this Monday's town council meeting, said the need for car parking regulation was obvious.
He said: 'This town is dying. Nobody wants to come to this town because there is nowhere to park.'

Meanwhile, the council is proposing to remove a hedge that surrounds the garden of remembrance at Queens Road Cemetery to make more space for interment of ashes.
