Concern over Cromer park future

Town councillors at Cromer are calling for a top level briefing on the future of North Lodge Park.

In the past they have expressed interest in taking over running the historic clifftop area, which was also the subject of a possible redesign.

But mayor Yvonne Nolan reported that talks with North Norfolk District Council had revealed that an eight year contract had been awarded to the company Kier, which was likely to improve the area 'quite a bit', particularly the play area, rose garden and putting green.

But Phil Harris said he was 'not happy' because the contract was to do with maintenance not redesign.

And John Lee said the contract 'puts another nail in the coffin of us raking over the running of the park.'

John Edwards said the town council had tried to build a relationship with the district over the park, but it now looked as if the district had been 'just been paying lip service.'

Councillors agreed to ask district council director Nick Baker to attend a future meeting.
