Major works on the £80,000 refurbishment of a mid Norfolk car park begin later this week.

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) is spending £80,000 on upgrading the facility over the next eight weeks.

The project will see Highfield Road Car Park in Fakenham resurfaced in works due to begin on Thursday, September 20.

A council spokesperson said: “[This] will provide a high-quality facility for the town and its visitors.

“The car park is currently unsurfaced, so the end result will be a much-improved facility.”

The work will include new signs and a barrier at the entrance to the car park.

There will be more than 70 standard and five disabled parking spaces.

The spokesperson added: “Charges will be introduced once the car park has been upgraded, bringing Highfield Road into line with other standard car-park tariffs around North Norfolk.”
