Aerial images have been released showing what a £2.5m redevelopment of Norwich city centre would look like.

The armchair helicopter tour gives a bird's eye virtual view of the near future, developers say.

It is part of the public consultation into changes in and around Golden Ball Street, All Saints Green and Westlegate.

Norwich City and Norfolk County councils want residents' comments on the new Transport for Norwich designs.

Steve Morphew, chair of the joint Norwich highways agency committee, said: "This is an excellent way of helping people see how these changes will affect this important part of the city centre.

"It can be quite difficult to grasp how plans will work in reality, especially when there are a number of measures over quite a wide area."

The aim of the new development is to reduce conflict between vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, while maintaining access for all modes of travel.
