A former Barclays bank could become a music studio, cafe and sensory room.
The youth and community space is being planned by North Walsham Phoenix Group, who announced plans for the £20,000 recording studio in its basement last month.
Pending getting planning permission, the group plans to support young people in the town by offering mental health drop-ins, youth support services and family support, with those offerings giving way to youth clubs, music and drama in the evenings.
The group's planning application to North Norfolk District Council says only minor alterations would be required to create the new hub whilst preserving its historic bank vault.
When plans were announced back in September last year, group chair, Mal Gray said: "We are all very excited at the amazing opportunities that lay ahead.”
In 1982, the building starred on the small screen when it appeared in the Tales of the Unexpected's The Moles episode.
