A traffic choked town will need to 'think outside the box' if it is to solve a long standing parking problem.

Holt Town Council members are to look at making a busy street one way in a bid to free up more parking spaces.

Room for up to 50 vehicles could be created on Kerridge Way if the change was made according to council member Ray Moore.

Speaking at last night's town council meeting Mr Moore said: 'There has been a parking problem for 15 to 20 years and we need to think outside the box to deal with it. We could explore this in the future to look at creating other one way roads to provide further car parking spaces.'

Mr Moore proposed the scheme should be enforced on a section of Kerridge Way between Station Road and Budgens supermarket.

The change would need to be approved by Norfolk County Council and traffic regulation order put in place costing around £5,000.

Members agreed that the council's car parking working group would consider the matter.
