Residents will be able to view and hear about exciting plans for Hunstanton at a special drop-in consultation event next month.
The drop-in session will take place on Thursday, 7 November, between 10am and 7pm at Hunstanton Town Hall.
Initial concepts coming out of the Hemingway Design masterplanning exercise, which took place last year, will be available for residents to look at and provide further feedback. Representatives from the borough council and Hemingway Design will be on hand to respond to any questions about the concepts or the suggested phasing of any projects that may come forward from the masterplan.
Residents will also be able to comment on the proposed redevelopment of the bus station and library site which came forward as part of the Government's One Public Estate proposals. Plans for the site include a larger, modern library, new public toilets, including accessible, baby change and adult changing facilities, some commercial space for retail or offices, and a further 50 flats, contributing to much-needed housing in the area.
The proposals will also detail how the bus stop provision will be improved with better gateway stops around the town.
Representatives from the borough council, The Design Partnership, Lovell, and the council's planning consultant, and the library service will be on hand to discuss the proposals.
Early proposals for a hotel on the Seagate East car park will also be available to view.
Borough council representatives will also be on hand to discuss car parking mitigation measures and gather feedback on parking proposals.
The aim of all the projects proposed is to positively contribute to the growth and vibrancy of Hunstanton.
The consultation will be open until 17 November. Anyone unable to attend the consultation event to provide feedback will be able to respond online from the 7 November onwards by visiting west-norfolk.gov.uk/haveyoursay.
The feedback will then be considered and planning applications submitted over the coming months. Further opportunities to provide feedback will be available through the normal planning process.
