North Walsham needs new, permanent public toilets, according to town councillors.
An outdated block behind the shop at 4a Market Street was demolished in 2012 as part of plans to redevelop both shop and toilets, but those plans did not come to fruition.
Meanwhile the town has the use of a temporary block placed in the Vicarage Road car park.
Now the town council, at the suggestion of David Spencer, is to ask North Norfolk District Council for a permanent replacement block to serve the town and its market traders.
Councillor Jacqueline Belson supported the idea but said she would not favour a new block on the site of the old one as last year's demolition of 4a Market Street itself had opened up a 'wonderful view' of the ancient parish church behind and she would not want to see a new toilet block 'right in the middle.'

The council agreed to suggest the Bank Loke car park as a possible alternative location.
It will also ask the district council to set up a 'disabled persons' comfort scheme' in the town, as proposed by Eric Seward.
