Resurfacing work has been completed as part of North Norfolk District Council’s £1.5m investment in the regeneration of Cromer’s West Promenade.

It marks the latest step in the programme of long-term improvements that will help develop the tourism potential of the town and improve the facilities for the district’s residents.

Previous work completed as part of this project has included:

  • a new children’s play area with under water mural
  • a new catering kiosk
  • new facilities including showers, disabled showers and toilets
  • the refurbishment of the viewing turrets, including the reinstatement of windows
  • the installation of solar lighting along paths
  • the refurbishment of the iconic white steps, including new lighting
  • the installation of mains lighting along the prom and in the Anglian Water building and viewing turrets
  • external repairs to the Art Deco block
  • new beach hut sites
  • new disabled-accessible picnic tables
  • the reorganisation of disabled parking to improve pedestrian access

Cllr Becky Palmer, NNDC Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “The regeneration of the West Prom will help enhance Cromer as a premier tourist destination, and the fresh new look and improved facilities will also benefit residents.

“It is great news that the resurfacing work has been completed, as we move towards the completion of this programme of improvements.

“The West Prom is already looking smarter than it has done for many years, and this work will make it even better.”
