A car park in a busy town centre is to be closed for three days so that its lighting can be upgraded.

The car park in The Link, Thetford, which is run by Breckland Council, will shut on Monday, March 19 and reopen on Thursday, March 22.

Paul Claussen, Breckland Council’s executive member for place, said: “While I appreciate that the essential improvement works may cause temporary inconvenience for some residents, it is vital that Breckland car parks are kept in good repair, not least because this helps to support local businesses.”

Thetford Town Council and nearby businesses were given advance warning of the closure.

Signs have been put up at the car park entrance to provide advanced warning for regular users.

The planned works are subject to favourable weather conditions and adverse weather conditions during the closure periods may cause some extensions to the planned times.

All other car parks in the town will remain open as usual.
