Temporary bus station in car park

Have your say

A temporary bus station could be created next to a Thetford pub, it was revealed this week.

Breckland is awaiting the outcome of an appeal against a Compulsory Purchase Order which would allow it to build a new bus station.

A decision on the CPO is expected in September/October and, if upheld, work on the £3.5 million Minstergate site could start in January 2014, taking around a year.

With a development planned for the existing bus station, Norfolk County Council has proposed using a car park area near the Chase pub in Newtown as a temporary site.
