RESIDENTS with questions about the play park planned for North Walsham's Acorn Road have been invited to a meeting this afternoon.

Police, town council and North Norfolk District Council representatives will be on The Green at 4pm to discuss the �60,000 project which has to be completed by the end of March to meet funding requirements.

Plans for The Green, which include a tunnel, zip wire, other activity equipment, and a youth shelter, prompted two residents to air their fears in last week's News about a possible increase in anti-social behaviour. A third householder has since written to the paper expressing similar concerns.

Inspector Peter Hornby said the multi-agency meeting had been arranged as part of the process of keeping people informed about the play park.

The project will be built with a �50,000 government Playbuilder grant which had been destined for a skateboard and BMX park at Happy Valley Cromer until nearby chalet owners' fears about anti-social behaviour led to funders pulling out of the town.

The Victory Housing Trust is separately funding the shelter.
