This is what a new community hub in Hellesdon could look like.
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.”
