Plans to upgrade a community hub in Sprowston have been recommended for approval by council officers.

The £1.2m project aims to extend the Sprowston Diamond Centre to provide a multi-use sports hall and new entrance off School Lane.

It will include changing rooms, a reception area, increased storage facilities and a new kitchen area.

The scheme is due to go before Broadland District Council's planning committee on Wednesday, May 17, where it is recommended for approval.

Last month, Sprowston Town Council's clerk, June Hunt, said it was vital that work on the building was completed as soon as possible. 'What we have found is that there is a great need for larger rooms. There are groups which have been so successful that they are now at maximum capacity and need a bigger area,' she said.
