As reported in yesterday’s Evening News, Norwich businessman Graham Dacre wants to build the hub on the former Volvo building and used car sales facilities in Cromer and Reepham Roads.

A planning application has now been lodged with Broadland council for the change of use, alteration and extension to the site and buildings to create a community centre. If the plans are approved, the vacant five-acre site will be transformed into a community hub with a new centre, a 300-seater church auditorium, motor museum, boxing gym and shops. Residents in the area were consulted on the plans, and Mr Dacre said: “Feedback from the consultations within the community has been most encouraging.”
