Buildings on a former poultry farm could be demolished to make way for a new meeting room.

Downham Gospel Hall Trust has applied to West Norfolk Council to create a home and a meeting hall with car park on Clovelly, Stoke Road, Wormegay.

The trust wants to demolish seven dilapidated chicken sheds on the site.

The group has meeting halls in North Runcton, Blackborough End and Watlington.

The planning application states that has been looking for a suitable site for five years to create the hall.

It also states that there has been an increase in membership as new families are moving into the area.

The application states that there would be a visual benefit on the approach to Wormegay by redeveloping the site.

It adds: “The provision of meeting premises in Wormegay would serve those residents of the immediate rural area (including Tottenhill and Shouldham), who would otherwise have to travel to meeting premises further afield.

“Put simply, the provision of meeting premises in Wormegay would reduce private vehicle miles and is fully sustainable based on current facilties owned by the trust.”

The application was lodged earlier this week.
