A public meeting is to be held in Harleston over a controversial plan to bring in parking charges for the market town.

The meeting at Archbishop Sancroft High School from 6.30pm on Thursday, December 8 will look at the proposals for the Bullock Fair and Broad Street car parks to be operated by South Norfolk Council at some point in 2017.

The two car parks are currently run by the town council and are free to park in.

On Wednesday night a special meeting of Redenhall with Harleston Town Council looked at the proposal, which will need to be ratified by a cabinet meeting of South Norfolk Council.

The meeting agreed to set up the public meeting at the town's high school.

As part of an overall plan South Norfolk Council will be introducing short stay and long stay car parks and parking fee changes in Wymondham and Diss in April 2017, with the aim to improve shop footfall.
