Long awaited make over of Aylsham’s market place to begin this weekend
Long awaited repair and resurfacing work to Aylsham's market place will begin on Sunday but motorists are being warned to expect 'inevitable' disruption.
The work is part of a scheme to overhaul the historic square using county council cash and money from Tesco, which the supermarket pledged to the town after being given the go ahead to open its Norwich Road store.
Penfold Street and the market place will be closed to all through traffic when the �70,000 of work begins and parking will also be blocked. Work will stop however, on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays to avoid disturbing market days.
Access to properties and businesses will be maintained from one end of the closure but Norfolk County Council, which is carrying out the four days of repairs, has warned there will be 'inevitable' disruption.
The authority has apologised for any inconvenience.

As part of the project buses will be re-routed out of the busy square, new shelters will be put up and the parking layout will be altered.
The square will also become a pedestrian-only area on market days with permits being issued to traders and any vehicles that need access.
