The future of a picnic site at one of the region’s beauty spots is being considered.

A consultation by the Forestry Commission is taking place into the future of the Two Mile Bottom car park, on the A134 near Thetford.

The organisation has said the car park has a low usage during the day and suffers from anti-social behaviour during the evenings - which has lead to high maintenance costs.

It is one of 14 sites the organisation manages around the forest and to reduce costs and help sustain more popular sites, reducing the size of the car park or closing it is being considered.

Visitors to the site are being asked for their views on the two solutions or to suggest other ideas.

The consultation is open until January 26 and once feedback has been considered the decision will be posted on Two Mile Bottom web page on February 5.

For more information about the consultation and to have your say visit the website.
