Memorial service for longest-serving Norfolk county councillor
The death of former Norfolk county councillor Adrian Gunson, the longest-serving councillor in the authority's existence, will be marked with a memorial service next month.
Adrian Gunson's remarkable commitment – and popularity among voters – meant he served the Loddon division at County Hall for 45 years, until his retirement in 2015.
For many of his years at County Hall, he was the cabinet member for planning and transportation. Under that brief he played a key role in building a string of bypasses and roundabouts around the county.
And the proposals for the £205m Norwich Northern Distributor Road, know known as the Broadland Northway, were drawn up on his watch.
Mr Gunson, who lived at Bedingham, near Bungay, died, at the age of 78 on Tuesday, October 2.
