A building project at Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham, has won a top regional award during the Local Authority Building Control awards.

The Hootz House indoor play centre was named ‘best inclusive building’ after being nominated for the award by the North Norfolk District Council.

Last year the centre was also awarded the 2016 Graham Allen Award for its exceptional design and contribution to the environment of the district.

The awards ceremony was held at Kings College, Cambridge in June and hosted by BBC Look East’s David Whiteley.

Councillor Sue Arnold, Cabinet Member for planning policy, said: “This is a tremendous achievement and congratulations to Pensthorpe for such thoughtful building projects. The awards evening was a really good opportunity to appreciate the commitment and expertise our Building Control Team gives to North Norfolk.”
