A £1.2m upgrade to a community centre north of Norwich has been given the go-ahead by councillors.
The project will see the Sprowston Diamond Centre extended to include a multi-use sports hall, changing rooms and new kitchen area.
Broadland District Council's planning committee voted unanimously in favour of the scheme at a meeting this morning.
It means that work on the community hub, off School Lane, could now begin this year. Once complete, it is envisaged that the centre will serve as a meeting place for a variety of clubs and organisations.
Planning papers suggest the new extension will provide everything from a nursery and computer classes to a wedding venue and sports activities.
During the construction period, people will still have access to the centre. As part of the application approved today, a 40-space car park off Neville Road for staff and visitors was also approved.
