How relevant is Sheringham Town Council?
That was the question posed by Councillor Peter Farley at the local authority's latest meeting.
He asked whether the public viewed the town council as 'shabby and out of touch' like the town hall building they meet in which he suggested could be sold to pay for a move to a 'more suitable' venue.
Councillor Farley, who claimed the town council had endured 'two years of turmoil', said: 'Looking at the furniture and fittings, would they encourage younger members to come?'
The councillor's controversial comments are to be discussed by the town council at a special meeting in October.

However, a date for the debate has yet to be confirmed and it is unclear whether the public will be excluded.
Deputy Clerk Kelly Cooper said: 'As it may involve staff matters the item could be taken under standing Order 1C - excluding any press or public.'
