Plans have been submitted to expand an Air Training Corps headquarters.

The 221 (Great Yarmouth) Squadron base in Suffolk Road, Gorleston has made an application to Great Yarmouth borough council to build a single-storey extension at its current site.

The proposals are to create a new main hall, radio room, two lecture rooms, as well as office space, toilets and amenities.

The current steel sheet tiles would be replaced with concretes ones and the almost half, or another 87.4 sq. metres (941 sq. foot).

Surface water at the site, which is in a flood risk area, would be disposed of via a soakaway.
