Work is to take place to widen an access road at the back of a West Norfolk entertainment venue.

Officials say the project at the Princess Theatre in Hunstanton is intended to ease access both for artists preparing to perform at the venue and the occupiers of nearby properties.

West Norfolk Council deputy leader Alistair Beales told the authority’s latest meeting there had been some “difficult scenes” because of the difficulties caused by the narrow width of the track at the rear of the theatre when acts are either loading or unloading equipment.

He said: “The borough council owns the whole track so there is now work going on to widen the track, so a lorry can park at the theatre and occupants of private premises can access their properties. I think that is a very worthwhile investment.”

Although he did not give a figure for how much the work is costing, Mr Beales said the required cash would be drawn from a specific budget for asset maintenance.
