An external toilet will be added to the facilities at Necton village hall after Breckland Council approved a £2,900 grant to add to funding from other sources.
The idea for the toilet was first discussed in spring 2012, and it could be opened in early 2013 after the building contract was awarded to R & I Buildings in Necton.
The project has also received a £1,000 grant from the Bernard Matthews Fund, and £237 from the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society to pay for fittings for people with disabilities.
The Necton Rural Community Centre is contributing £4,098 of its own funds towards the new facility.
Bernard Bell, secretary and treasurer of the centre, said: “The idea of it is that we have got an outside toilet that can be used by people who use the play area and keep fit site and playing field in general. It will have to be kept locked at night because of vandalism and we are hoping for a time lock.”
