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.
