Start date for major Hunny project


Work is expected to start next month on a £1.3m project to regenerate part of Hunstanton.

Contractors Blakedown Environment and Leisure have been appointed to work alongside landscape architects Wynne-Williams Associates.

They are expected to set up on site on Monday with work starting on February 6. Members of the public are invited to meet representatives of the company on Thursday, February 2, from 5pm to 8pm.

Exhibition boards and plans will be on display and there will be the chance to ask questions between 6pm and 7pm.

The major project will centre around The Green, Esplanade Gardens and Cliff Parade.

It will include refurbishment of the butterfly shelters, new footpaths, a play area, a crazy golf course and more information for visitors about the town’s heritage.

Part of the project will include re-siting the flood memorial and Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk Council cabinet member, said “careful investigations” would be undertaken before this was done.
