The Greater Norwich Growth Board have recommended four new projects for approval that will give local people greater access to sports facilities and improved green spaces in the Greater Norwich area.

Two of the projects will see the creation of 3G artificial pitches at the Brundall Sports Hub and the Football Development Centre in Bowthorpe.

Kett’s Heights will receive over £300k in investment which will significantly improve access to the site with the creation of a new habitat to improve biodiversity.

The Bure Valley Path will also benefit from improved access with a new crossing over the A140 to deliver safe passage for cyclists and pedestrians, and the establishment of six circular walks.

Two existing Marriotts Way projects have also been allocated an additional £341,000 in funding.
