Norfolk councillors have been questioned about a 'lack of clarity and detail' in their plans for a property investment company.

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) agreed to use £2m of reserve funding to establish the limited company in their budget for 2019/20.

But at the final full meeting of the current council on Wednesday, April 24, John Lee, leader of the opposition Conservative group, said: 'We are concerned that to date there has been almost no information or detail supporting this proposal.

'Members should have the opportunity to debate the pros and cons of establishing such a company.'

He proposed members be allowed to assess the proposal and that it be scrutinised by 'an appropriate body'.
