Two concept maps on the West Norfolk council’s website has revealed the true extent of the developments proposed on the Southend and South Prom car parks in Hunstanton.

Concept 1 reveals a number of proposed residential buildings and landscaping on the current car parks with a small car park allocated toward the north end – though it is unclear if this will be a public or private car park for residents.

The smaller car park of 60 spaces is a substantial reduction from the 495 spaces currently at Southend car park.

Concept 2 allows for slightly more car parking and a repositioned leisure centre and a number of residential and commercial/residential properties built on the car park. There is also a proposed hotel on the site of the current Oasis leisure centre.

The South Prom car park would also be transformed into a 'landscaped events space'.
