Future of town's bus station in balance

Negotiations are continuing over the future of Cromer's bus station and Norfolk County Council has reiterated its determination to get a permanent facility back in the town.

Negotiations are continuing over the future of Cromer's bus station and Norfolk County Council has reiterated its determination to get a permanent facility back in the town.

The station on the corner of Prince of Wales Road and Cadogan Road has been closed since April.

Owners Ortona want to build a shop and 12 flats on the site but the scheme was rejected by a government planning inspector in August.

The county council has also developed tentative plans for an alternative bus station 120m further away from the town centre on the Cadogan Road car park but says that its preferred option would still be for the original site to reopen.

Council spokesman Melanie Willis said: "We are still in negotiations as to what the best way forward is but what we ultimately want to achieve is a bus station for Cromer."
