Residents-only parking is set to be investigated in a north Norfolk coastal town.

Wells Town Council has agreed to ask county councillor Marie Strong, who represents the area, to look into whether the idea could help solve problems on some of the resort's congested streets.

At tonight's full council meeting, chairman Allen Frary said he had received many complaints from residents.

'I think we'd be doing the people of Wells an injustice if we didn't look at this,' he added.

Roger Arguile said: 'I think there's something to be said for investigating it. I would say looking at it in detail, street by street, would be worthwhile.'

Councillor Gary Anthony said he believed there was a need for restrictions in some areas of the town.

Tonight's meeting also agreed for bins to be removed from the playing field for a trial period, after councillors heard they were overflowing with discarded chip boxes from seafront takeaways.
