Great Yarmouth Borough Council is set to restore the historic Venetian Waterways on the seafront.
The Council is working with the community on a flagship £2.7m project to restore the Grade II-listed seafront attraction.
This will see the Boating Lake and Island Café refurbished and brought back into use, the bridges and shelters restored, and volunteers reinstate the original planting scheme from 1928.
The whole of the site will be closed from Monday in order to ensure the safety of the public, project volunteers and staff during the restoration work.
Concerns raised as improvement director is silent over plans to improve hospitals.
Philippa Slinger, improvement director at the region’s mental health trust and the county’s flagship hospital, was parachuted in by regulator NHS Improvement (NHSI) when the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT) went into special measures in October.
She has refused to speak and answer concerns and talks about her plans, MPs, unions and campaign groups have come together to call for more involvement of patients and staff in the battle to fix our health service.
Spokesman for the Campaign to Save Mental Health Services in Norfolk and Suffolk said: Ms Slinger would be a champion for mental health but her appointment at the N&N and her unwillingness to engage with service users and carers makes this look unlikely.
Caravans on a site in Sea Palling in north Norfolk can now be used all the year round for holiday purposes.
Lovat Parks Ltd applied for the permanent use of 34 static caravans at Golden Beach park in Beach Road.
And the proposals were approved by North Norfolk District council’s development committee on Thursday, July 12.
At present the caravans can only be used between March 20 and October 31 and for 10 days either side of Christmas.
