The future of Sheringham's Splash Leisure centre is a huge talking point amongst the north Norfolk community.

A consultation event was held on March 22, where the public could go and ask initial questions about the multi-million pound project.

However, for those who could not attend the event, the North Norfolk District Council are still encouraging and welcoming comments from the public.

Hundreds of people visited the event on March 22, but other submissions and feedback can be submitted online via the NNDC's website, until April 8.

Councillor Becky Palmer, NNDC cabinet member for Leisure Services said: 'This project highlights our commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of North Norfolk's residents. I hope that as many people as possible take the opportunity to share their views with us, to help make sure we get it right.'

Splash at Sheringham was opened in May 1988. A condition survey conducted last year highlighted an urgent need to invest in a new facility to ensure access to leisure services is secured for the future.

As a result, NNDC has pledged £10.7 million to fund the state-of-the-art facility.

Councillor Judy Oliver, member for Sheringham South, said: 'I hope residents in and around Sheringham will be among those who make most use of what will be a first-class new facility. It's really important we have as many views as possible to help us meet everyone's wishes and expectations.'
