A new search for gipsy sites is being planned in North Norfolk to answer calls for permanent locations - even though local officials think they are not needed.

Two temporary sites have been opened at Cromer and Fakenham to deal with the regular short-term traveller visits, normally in the summer time.

But the East of England regional assembly is calling on all district councils to provide 20 permanent pitches by 2021.

Officers are suggesting there should be a study of the existing and likely future needs for gipsy and traveller sites, including looking at the use of transit sites.
