Coach parking bays removed

North Norfolk District Council has taken the decision to temporarily suspend coach parking at the car parks in Cadogan Road, Cromer, and Station Approach, Sheringham.

This is due to the current government guidance recommending against coach travel at the present time, and the expected slow recovery of this sector due to social distancing measures, plus the anticipated influx of day visitors to the coast.

The coach bays have therefore been turned into standard car parking spaces for this season to meet the expected increased demand for car parking spaces in these two towns.

At Cadogan Road, there were 12 coach bays which have become 30 standard spaces, including six additional disabled bays.

At Station Approach, five coach bays have been turned into 21 spaces including two disabled bays.

Car park users are advised to observe the signage in place and to keep an eye on NNDC’s website and social media channels to keep up to date with any changes to this arrangement that might be made if the government relaxes its restrictions on coach trips in the coming weeks.

    Disgraceful no coach parking for Cromer or Sheringham where do they suggest coaches park. What about the hotel De Parry in Cromer that is owned by a coach operator and does mainly coach holidays. Where have the government advised about coach travel. Shocking no alternative for coaches I think all operators should boycott North Norfolk all together…..

    I understand the need short term but surely a drop off bay could have been left for coach services to use rather than dropping off and unloading on the side of a road in these busy towns.
