Councillors to discuss £25k plan for Hunstanton town hall repairs

A special meeting is taking place this evening to discuss urgent repairs to Hunstanton's town hall.

Proposals to spend up to £25,000 on the renovations will be examined during a special town council meeting, which will take place on Zoom from 6pm.

The development comes a few weeks after members were told that a senior council official had narrowly escaped injury from falling masonry in the building.

Agenda papers published ahead of the meeting have outlined three separate areas for consideration.

They are the need for "immediate repairs" to the hip and turret roof, the ceiling above the turret entrance and the building's flooring.

The papers propose spending a maximum of £10,000 on the roof and floor issues, plus a maximum £5,000 on the ceiling issue.

The proposals come after it emerged in January that the council's clerk, Jan Roomes, had narrowly escaped injury when part of the building's ceiling fell down.

At the time, the town's mayor, Tony Bishopp, said a full survey of the building would be required in the light of the incident.
