Flats’ bid for former town centre school

Proposals to remodel a former school into six flats have been lodged with planners.
Calthorpe Nursery in Alexandra Road, Great Yarmouth, was among a string of provisions to shut suddenly in November 2019 when the trust running it collapsed into administration.
While some of the settings including the Priory Nursery were saved by Norfolk County Council, Calthorpe House was put up for sale by liquidators, and the staff transferred over.
Between them the two nurseies provided 112 of the 388 childcare places available in Great Yarmouth.
Now, a bid to create six self-contained flats in the building overlooking St George’s Park has been submitted.
It also looks to achieve the conversion of an outbuilding to a create self-contained dwelling.
