Far-reaching plans have been unveiled to build a harbour on an area of derelict land in Hunstanton.

Far-reaching plans have been unveiled to build a harbour on an area of derelict land in Hunstanton.

West Norfolk Council is considering transforming the town's former Kit Kat Club into a major tourist attraction, complete with berths for small boats.

Hunstanton mayor Geoffrey Smith yesterday welcomed the news but warned a decision was still some way off.

Mr Smith said: "It came completely out of the blue to the town council and myself.

"They [West Norfolk Council] want to revitalise and regenerate the area and anything they could do to tidy up that area would be an enhancement to the town.

"It is all, however, very embryonic at this stage and they are going to come back to us with further details in September."

Mr Smith held talks with borough council chief executive Ray Harding to discuss the proposals earlier this month.

If the town council gives them the seal of approval, further meetings are likely to take place later this year.

A spokesman for Mr Harding stressed the harbour plans were only at the discussion stage.

Mr Smith said: "It could only be for very small boats but it would be a tourist attraction as much as anything else.

"The cost would be borne by West Norfolk Council. I think they are keen to build a few bridges [with Hunstanton town council]."
