Have your say

I write to you in my capacity as chairman of Hunstanton Heritage Centre Trustees to complain about the noise and vibrations caused by pile driving on the McCarthy & Stone construction site in St Edmund’s Terrace.

The buildings on the south side of The Green date back to 1862 and concern has been expressed by several owners that the foundations could be adversely affected by the pile driving if it is allowed to continue. The road leading down to the building site is called Westgate, but it was originally called Shingle Pit Road – indicating that the pit from which the shingle was extracted might in all probability have been in the vicinity of the McCarthy & Stone site, which is where Westgate Gardens were created by the Le Strange Estate once the shingle had been extracted and the land deemed more suitable for use as a public park rather than housing.
