A public consultation begins this week about how to improve the Marriott’s Way over the next ten years.

Part of the network of Norfolk Trails, the footpath, bridleway and cycleway of the Marriott’s Way stretches 26 miles from Norwich to Aylsham.

Norfolk County Council is working with Norwich City Council, Broadland District Council, South Norfolk District Council, Sustrans and the Norwich Fringe Project to draw up an Improvement Plan for the route. This aims to guide what projects are undertaken to improve the Trail over the next ten years.

Drop-in events will take place in five different locations along the route in February, as well as an online survey being launched, where residents can give their ideas on how to improve the Marriott’s Way. Residents can also give opinion on the ideas that councils and partners have for the route.

Drop-in events:
February 16, Mile Cross – Norman Centre, Bignold Road, 2pm – 6.30pm.
February 18, Reepham – Bircham Centre, Market Place, 2pm – 6.30pm.
February 20, Drayton – Drayton Village Hall, Pond Lane, 2pm – 6.20pm.
February 23, Costessey – Costessey Centre, Longwater Lane, 2pm – 6.30pm.
February 25, Aylsham – Town Hall, Market Square, 2pm – 6.30pm.

Each drop-in session will cover topics including: surfacing, lighting, information about the trail, vegetation management and other features (such as artwork).

The online survey will run from the February 14 for one month. A link to the online survey is available by visiting www.norfolktrails.co.uk
