Central community hub
M&EA Borough Council has submitted an Economic Appraisal (EA) to DfC/BSC to potentially partially fund a new community centre/hub on the site previously occupied by the former Waveney Community Centre. An outline floor plan has been presented and shared with DRDG however, no formal design work has been undertaken.
DfC/BSC is considering this EA in line with the objectives included in the Regeneration Plan and liaising with M&EA Borough Council to support a positive outcome subject to approval and budget availability.
This case has been set down for hearing therefore waiting to be listed for review and thereafter a hearing. Although due to the pandemic the courts were closed for a period of time last year and almost certainly there is a backlog of cases. M&EA Borough Council continues to await confirmation from the Court office for a review date hearing.
