Work on the highly anticipated Thetford Riverside development will get underway tomorrow as site clearance begins.

Once the clearance is complete, it is hoped work can start on the development in the spring.

Welcoming the start of the work, Breckland Council leader Michael Wassell said: “Riverside is set to be the first Breckland development project to benefit from our new approach to attracting private sector investment and expertise through an innovative regeneration partnership.

“Riverside will be the first and largest of three schemes to be delivered in Breckland through the partnership.

“When complete the development, with a cinema, hotel and retail units, will provide a major economic boost for the town and its night-time economy, creating jobs and regenerating and revitalising the town centre.”

The site clearance work undertaken this month will entail removing vegetation and some trees, mainly those which have self-seeded within the grounds of the former Anchor Hotel.

The Riverside scheme, part of a wider regeneration of Thetford, is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
