Parish councillors in Hethersett have decried the parlous state of a major gateway into the village.
At a council meeting one member, Shane Hull, brought up concerns about the Steeple Tower development, which he claimed was beset by dangerous and dilapidated brickwork, broken and chipped paving, a shoddy bus shelter and broken flowerpots.
Mr Hull said: “With the village ever growing, Steeple Tower is a major entry point to our village and it’s a site for sore eyes with benches falling apart, dangerous brickwork and broken paving.
“The bus shelter is in disrepair and other seats are rusted and corroded.
“It doesn’t give a good impression of our village either to local people or visitors.”
Councillors decided to raise the matter with South Norfolk Council, which has responsibility for the area, and point out the potential risks of allowing Steeple Tower to deteriorate even more.
