A consultation on plans to transform Tombland is drawing to a close, with the deadline for comments coming up on Thursday.

Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council are asking for feedback on proposed transport and public space changes to the Tombland and Upper King Street area of the city.

The aims of the Transport for Norwich project are to improve walking and cycling links, provide better access to public transport, make the area more accessible for disabled people and to attract investment by improving the quality and look of the area.

Councillor Mike Stonard, cabinet member for sustainable and inclusive growth, says: “We’d like feedback on the plans from anyone who visits, lives in or uses the area to help shape the version of the scheme that will be put forward for funding.

“This consultation is just on the initial ideas for the project but we’d like as many people as possible to get involved to help us take the project into the next phase of development.”

Full details on the proposals and a link to the online consultation are available at www.norfolk.gov.uk/tombland

The same information is also on display on the first floor landing of City Hall until Thursday (28 February), 9am to 5pm.
