THE battle over the future of Cromer's bus station has moved to the High Court in London.
Developer Ortona is challenging a planning inspector's refusal of their scheme to put 12 flats and a shop on the site at Cromer.
In an action which began on Tuesday the company says the inspector was wrong to preserve the land for possible reuse as a bus station as there was no evidence it would ever happen.
Campaigners have been pressing for the town to retain a bus station, and were heartened when the planning inquiry threw out Ortona's case appeal against refusal of its scheme at the Prince of Wales Road site.
The company is now asking High Court judge Mr Justice Andrew Collins to quash the inspector's decision and get the appeal re-heard.
The hearing continues.
