A community transport group is looking for a new headquarters to make way for a pub giant which is set to move into its town centre base.

JD Wetherspoon is proposing to buy the New Road offices in North Walsham, home of North Norfolk Community Transport.

The national chain hopes to turn it into a restaurant and bar at a cost of £1.6m.

North Walsham Town Council, Norfolk Citizens Advice Bureau and North Walsham in Bloom are also based in the New Road offices.

The community transport charity provides trips for people including the elderly, youth groups, people with disabilities and the rurally isolated.

It employs 14 people but is looking to recruit more staff in the future.

The charity needs space to store its fleet of minibuses if the new site is far from Hall Lane where the fleet is currently stored.
