Norfolk County Council is consulting on highways proposals designed to improve access to and from the town centre for pedestrians and cyclists, and support the regeneration of the area.

It comes after Great Yarmouth Borough Council allocated £2.5m to put towards a separate project to redevelop nearby North Quay at a council meeting on Thursday night. Both projects are part of the Town Centre Masterplan.

Councillor Mick Castle, Norfolk county councillor for Yarmouth North and Central, said: "Local residents and visitors to the town should see major improvements in the 'look and feel' of this historic road, which was once graced by a host of bank branches before those moved just a short distance into the market place.

"This part of Yarmouth town centre is earmarked for future regeneration and these changes will very much enhance the area's appeal."

Norfolk County Council has worked with Great Yarmouth Borough Council on the Hall Quay project.

The scheme will be funded as part of a £3.2m package to tackle congestion in the town, awarded to the county council from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership's (LEP) Growth Deal with the government.

The final cost of the project will be decided once the consultation and detailed design has been completed.

Councillor Martin Wilby, Norfolk County Council's cabinet member for highways, infrastructure and transport, said: "It's fantastic that we're able to invest in this historic part of Great Yarmouth, thanks to funding support from New Anglia LEP.

"We'd like as many people as possible to get involved to share their views and help us finalise the details for the finished design."

Information on the proposals will also be on display in Great Yarmouth Town Hall between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday until Thursday, August 1.

The deadline for comments is 5pm on Friday, August 2.

Consultation responses will be reported back to councillors who will then decide how to proceed with the project.
