Tourist information services will be offered from Hunstanton's new library once it is built, council chiefs confirmed this week.

The location of the provision has been a source of debate ever since the former centre at the town hall closed suddenly two years ago.

A temporary service is currently being offered from the Oasis leisure centre.

Long-term plans for Hunstanton's library to host tourist information services have been outlined.
Long-term plans for Hunstanton's library to host tourist information services have been outlined.

But longer-term plans for the service were outlined during a meeting of West Norfolk Council's corporate performance panel on Wednesday.

Deputy leader Graham Middleton said: "We now have confirmation in a letter from the county council that when the new library is in place, the tourist information centre will be part of that offer.

"It goes a long way to meeting the objectives of residents."

Tourist information switched to the Oasis after an initial offer was set up at the old Coal Shed Gallery following the closure of the town hall facility.

Building work on the new library was delayed until the spring last autumn because of supply chain pressures and concern about potential disruption to the Princess Theatre during the Christmas period.

Hunstanton's library is currently being housed in Valentine Road. The new library is part of a larger development of flats, shops and public toilets on the bus station, which was given planning permission in December 2020.
