Holt junction safety concern

Improved signs are being called for at a tricky junction just outside Holt.

Residents went to a town council meeting to call for a flashing sign at Lodge Corner on the Norwich Road - where a side road to Hunworth branches off a blind bend.

Town clerk Di Dann said the county council had suggested residents ask the town council to provide the sign.

'We have already paid �5,000 for two others signs on Cromer Road and Letheringsett Hill, and felt we should not have to do it again,' she added.

There was not a bad accident record at the spot but officials would look at finding other ways to improve signage.

Town councillors agreed to keep the council budget at its current level of �73,208, even through there would be extra running costs of around �7,000 a year after taking on the Church Street toilets.

Members also heard there were moves afoot to get the town's war memorial - recently refurbished after a �5,000 public appeal - listed for its historic importance.
