CAMPAIGNERS battling to retain a bus station in the heart of Cromer lost a key battle last week after a High Court ruling.
Developers Ortona, who want to build a shop and 12 flats on the disused bus station, triumphed in their legal challenge to a government inspector's refusal of planning permission for the scheme.
The judge ruled the inspector had "failed to grapple" with the key
claim raised by Ortona, that there was no likelihood the site at the corner of Prince of Wales Road and Cadogan Road would ever be re-used as a bus station.
