Questions over access to Thetford’s proposed skatepark have ben resolved and a revised planning application will be made, the town council heard last night.

Cllr Corinne Fulford told councillors that the new application would go to Breckland’s planning committee on June 19.

She said the plan involved creating a new path, to cycleway standard, on land between the Thetford Academy carpark boundary fence and Joe Blunts Lane.

Cllr Fulford said emergency services were satisfied with access to the site.

Town clerk Maurice Howard said Norfolk County Council had recently discovered that the land had not been transferred to the academy as previously thought.
