Council bosses are planning to cash in on the site of a former school - by asking councillors to agree to sell it.

Members of Norfolk County Council's cabinet are being asked to give the go-ahead for the sale of the former Dersingham Infant School site.

The Conservative-controlled council owns two patches of land at the Saxon Way site, with the remainder owned by Norwich Diocese.

At a meeting of the council's cabinet on Monday (June 5), members will be asked to agree to sell the council-owned land, either on the open market or at auction.

Approval from the Secretary of State will be needed before the sale can go through.

In 2013, Dersingham Infant and Junior Schools moved into one site at Admirals Drive to become Dersingham VA Primary and Nursery School.

From 2013 to 2020, both school sites were used.

But, apart from during one of the Covid-19 lockdowns, pupils have only used the Admirals Drive building, so the school's governors decided to shut the Saxon Way site.
