Funding for north Norfolk's largest market town was raised at the final meeting of the current district council ahead of the local elections.

Doctor Fiona Turner asked councillors at the last full meeting of North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), on Wednesday, April 24, to give funding to North Walsham. She said: 'North Walsham is the largest town in north Norfolk. It is growing rapidly and has been the focus of ongoing concern with its need for regeneration in both economic and cultural terms.

'Can NNDC now commit to very significant financial resources for the infrastructure of North Walsham? The right time to build quality of life outcomes for its residents is now.'

Eric Seward, ward member for North Walsham (North), said NNDC was participating in schemes to draw funding and businesses into the town.

He said: 'North Walsham is earmarked as a growth town.
