A number of projects hoping to regenerate Cromer have been outlined as part of a bid for funding from the government.
North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) is applying for a slice of the £4.8 billion 'levelling up' fund.
In March, the government announced that the money will support town centre and high street regeneration, local transport projects, and cultural and heritage assets.
NNDC's bid will be made up of multiple small projects, with the proposals subject to future public consultation if the bid is successful.
The council is seeking views from visitors, residents and businesses in the area to assess the level of support there is for the proposals.
Consultation will run until July 1. The survey can be found on the council's website.
The bid will include some of the following proposals:
1. Regeneration of North Lodge Park
- 1 Revealed: Why wasps chase you and how to get rid of them this summer
- 2 Man's surprise at finding virtually naked man asleep on car in Cromer
- 3 What is saltwater toxicity and why is it dangerous for your dog?
- 4 Incredible aerial photographs capture Norfolk's crystal clear waters
- 5 Community cafe closes six weeks after opening
- 6 Stunning drone shots capture high tide in Wells

- 8 Fundraising drive for Norfolk's damaged pyramid planned
- 9 'Not our problem' - Tyre mountain boss exports 350 tonnes of rubber 'I know not where'

This would include a multi-use area for public events, activities and seasonal attractions, such as Christmas markets or temporary ice skating rinks in the winter, or children's activities and health and wellbeing during the summer.
Friends of North Lodge Park have also proposed pop up concessions, a horticultural hub and a community shed.
