An out-dated community centre could be a step closer to getting a make-over.

Downham Town Council agreed at a meeting on Tuesday to support the principle of applying for planning permission to improve Jubilee Community Centre.

It is hoped to extending the building to create additional meeting rooms along with kitchen facilities.

Deputy clerk Richard Davidson said: “It was a unanimous decision. We are very keen to try and source funding to bring about this long awaited and eagerly wanted improvements.

“But I would like to stress that we are at the very early stages of the journey.”

The centre, which is owned by the council, was built in the 1960s but is now outdated.
