A �100,000 scheme to replace 1,000 street signs in north Norfolk is under way.

New, hard-wearing nameplates have already been installed at Fakenham and North Walsham as part of the year-long programme of work to replace signs damaged or run-down due to vandalism, accidents and old age.

Those in Sheringham and Cromer are set to get a make-over in the next six weeks, with Holt, Stalham and Wells tackled after that.

North Norfolk District Council had built up a large backlog of work which prompted the decision to invest in the major overhaul.

Rural parishes in the district are also being surveyed to find out what signs are missing, damaged or in need of replacement and problems should be addressed by the end of the financial year.

As the work is carried out, an inventory of street nameplates will be put together so the council is no longer solely reliant on the public letting them know about damaged or missing signs.
