As part of the Council’s ongoing commitment to businesses in North Walsham, two hours free parking is available in the Vicarage Street and Bank Loke car parks to allow shoppers to continue visiting local businesses with minimal disruption.

The new ticket machine software has been installed to enable visitors to use the two-hours free parking while they attend business around the town. Tariff and display boards have been updated to inform visitors they must obtain a ticket for their two-hours free parking.

Work on Mundesley Road is nearing completion and vehicular access has been restored for drivers approaching from the Aylsham and Cromer Road junction. The re-opening of Mundesley Road is news welcomed by the Council, and more importantly, by local traders.

In Market Street, Phase 2 of work by tRIIO (on behalf of Cadent) has started and the taxi rank there has been relocated to Church Street. All businesses in the area remain open despite the works.

Signage has been erected by Council Officers to inform drivers of changes to traffic flow and will be regularly updated as works progress around North Walsham.

North Walsham Cllr. Eric Seward said: ‘The message from the District Council is clear. North Walsham is open for business and we want people to keep coming to the town. The Council’s main car parks at Bank Loke and Vicarage St continue to be free for the first two hours and as the gas works progress through the town centre. District Council Officers will put up signs reminding people that shops and businesses are open’

North Norfolk District Council continues to meet with affected businesses and support the economic development of North Walsham as the essential gas works are undertaken.
