Richard Batson A gipsy transit site on the edge of Fakenham has been backed by planning councillors - but with calls to look at a 50mph speed limit on the main road outside its front door.

TWO travellers' transit sites needed in north Norfolk are close to being constructed.

A final go-ahead for a site on the edge of Fakenham has been approved by North Norfolk District Council's west area planning committee, subject to tying up loose ends such as adding movement-sensitive safety lighting, and seeking the lower speed limit.

Fakenham's site will cost £844,000 and a similar one at Holt Road, Cromer, also recently approved, another £545,000 - but with funding coming from central government.
