Parking enforcement officers are being brought in from King's Lynn as part of a drive to tackle illegal parking in Diss.

A two-week crackdown on people parking in breach of on-street regulations in the town's heritage triangle is being launched today (June 13).

District councillor Graham Minshull told a meeting of Diss Town Council the crackdown would continue on random days, including Saturday and Sunday, for the next two weeks with extra enforcement officers brought to the town from King's Lynn.

Diss Heritage Triangle was given new road signs and a different layout as part of a £3.4m revamp, which was completed in August last year. Nine car parking spaces and double yellow lines were removed to make the area more pedestrian friendly.

But even though signs make clear restrictions remain, the changes have led to confusion among drivers over the parking rules, with many taking to social media to vent their frustrations.
