A former community centre owned by the Queen could be turned into homes.

The Royal Estate office at Sandringham has applied to demolish Dersingham Community Centre, on Manor Road, and build nine houses on the site.

A planning and access statement says as well as demolishing the 19th Century building - formerly the village school - the scheme includes “substantial remodelling” of the junction between Manor Road and Doddshill Road, to improve visibility.

It adds: “The improvement of this junction will be of significant benefit to the residents of Doddshill as well as to the

wider community and can only be achieved by demolition of the existing building.”

A mixture of two, three and four bedroom properties have been proposed for the site. The application states because the scheme consists of less than 11 houses, it does not need to include an “affordable housing contribution”.

West Norfolk council’s planning committee has been recommended to approve the plans when it meets on Monday, January 8.
