Plans to refurbish a village’s leisure centre will be decided by South Norfolk Council on Wednesday.

Gym-goers could enjoy a host of improvements to the Long Stratton Leisure Centre, in Swan Lane, as part of a £2m expansion.

Included in the plans are refurbishments to the sports hall, changing rooms and the construction of a new multi-use studio and spinning studio.

A soft play area would also be constructed as well as the car park being redesigned to accommodate 14 more spaces.

The centre is run by the South Norfolk Council which hopes the work will help meet the extra demand due as more than 1,800 new homes are planned for the village.

The application has been recommend for approval and has been supported by Long Stratton Parish Council with no objections lodged.

A number of conditions have been put forward including a need for a lighting plan and no generators be used in the construction.
