Dog fouling, traffic congestion, parking, bins and sports were among the priorities households in Cromer had listed as most important in a new survey.

The results from the 2013 residents' survey form part of the town's neighbourhood plan, which is aimed to make residents part of Cromer Town Council's decision making process.

Dog fouling was the issue of most concern, and the town council said it would work with North Norfolk District Council to control the activities of dog owners, while promoting Cromer as a 'dog-friendly town'.

The town council said it would be pressing for a 20mph speed limit through the town centre's one-way system, more visitor parking, resident parking spaces and town centre pedestrianisation.

The plan summary said the fact Cromer was one of the safest places to live in the country was reflected in the low number of residents with concerns over personal safety.

More than 900 replies to the 2013 survey were received.

For the future, the plan said concern for young people came through strongly in the responses, and more needed to be done to create jobs.
