It comes after the winter blooms in a tower planter on Lowestoft town centre and other smaller planters in the town have now been replaced.

Residents had raised concerns about the poor condition of some of the plants in the past few weeks, and posts on social media this week highlighted the state that the plants had been left in, prompting complaints to Lowestoft Vision.

Dan Poitras, chairman of Lowestoft Vision - the town's business improvement district (BID) - confirmed that all of the old winter plants have now been cleared, with new summer plants soon to be planted to replace them.

Mr Poitras said: "Waveney Norse will be planting summer plants in the town centre planters early next week."

As part of continuing efforts to make the town centre more appealing and attractive, Lowestoft Vision is working with Waveney Norse to "maintain the planters" and more than 40 hanging baskets are set to be going up around the town in the next couple of weeks.

Mr Poitras said: "This year was the first year that we kept some of the planters in place as we planted winter plants.

"These should all be emptied out now and they will be replaced with summer plants."
