Car park repairs under way

Repairs to Dereham's Cherry Tree car park will take place in five stages, Breckland Council have said, with no more than 45 spaces closed off at any one time.

Work started on Monday to replace defective grating and surfacing at the north end of the car park, in and next to the Respect Zone. The first stage, an area of 40-45 spaces, should soon be completed before contractors move on to a second area involving 35 to 40 spaces.

The rest of this week and next week will see another three areas, each representing 15-20 spaces, being closed for around two days each. The estimates are subject to site and weather conditions.

The car park offers free parking for around 200 vehicles.

A spokesman for the council said the work was essential and apologised for any inconvenience.
