A discussion about the future of a historic north Norfolk park will be happening next week.

The Friends of North Lodge Park group meeting will be happening at Cromer Community Centre, Garden Street, on Wednesday October 15 at 7pm. The public can attend.

Cromer Town Council is in negotiations with North Norfolk District Council to take over the running of the town's North Lodge Park.

It is hoped the deal can be completed by this year and a £150,000 grant from the district council can be match funded.

Speaking about previous negotiations with the district council, committee chairman and town councillor Phil Harris said they wanted to ensure its future as a green space.

He said: 'We want a covenant put on to prevent it ever being used as anything else other than a park. We will look at what needs doing in the park and apply for grant money.'

Question marks hang over the future of long-running park facilities such as putting and bowls which might not be affordable as maintenance costs outweigh income.
