Plans to add illuminated signs to Cromer Pier have been submitted to the North Norfolk District Council.

An application made by current agents Openwide has requested permission to erect three illuminated signs to the buildings at the entrance to the Grade II listed Cromer Pier.

They have also requested one non-illuminated sign which will work as a menu board.

The illuminated signs will be dark grey, and lit from behind with red lighting, stretching along the sides of the buildings.

The signs along the Pier entrance buildings will read: ‘TIDES RESTAURANT’ and below: ‘eat... relax... enjoy the view.’

The application reads: “The proposals aim to increase visitor awareness during the day and evening by attracting attention from both west and east beaches and from the higher level pathways along the cliff top. The illumination would be static with the halo

effect discreet but visible enough in the evening light.

“We believe the proposal aims to protect the Historic Environment by increasing the financial viability of the Restaurant thus ensuring its’ future.”

This is Openwide’s latest proposal after their previous plans to bring windbreakers to the Pier were thrown out by the planning committee at NNDC.

The committee will once again make the ultimate decision on this plan.
