People are being asked for their views on how to spend almost £20,000 earmarked for improvements at one of the city's community centres.
The windfall is for the open space next to Wensum Community Centre, off Hotblack Road.
Keith Driver, Norwich City Council's cabinet member for neighbourhoods and community safety, said: 'This money is funding from previous development work that has been allocated specifically to the Wensum Community Centre area.
'An important part of spending it appropriately is engaging with the local community to find out what improvements they want to see on their doorstep. The result will not only be an improved outdoor space for residents to enjoy, but one they have helped to shape from the beginning.'
The site had been earmarked for a new play area, but, following talks with the police, the Wensum Community Association and people living nearby, that will now be built at Wensum View Park because of concerns over anti-social behaviour.
