Gray’s Arcade, Norfolk, to be developed


The site of Gray’s Arcade in Wells-next-the-Sea Norfolk which has been left derelict since a fire in 2005, will finally be redeveloped.

Two applications to demolish the boarded-up building and turn it into shops, a cafe and flats were approved by North Norfolk District councillors this week.

.Mike Gates, chairman of Wells-next-the-Sea Town Council’s planning committee, said: “We’ve been waiting for a long time for something to happen on it.”

The first set of plans will turn the shop site into a cafe and shop unit, three flats and a maisonette.

The second application means three shops, an office and nine flats will occupy the position of Gray’s Arcade.

The huge blaze took 70 firefighters three hours to put out, with arson ruled out as the cause.
