A new sports centre planned for the outskirts of Norwich, which was due to see work begin this week, has seen plans approved to expand its site.

The Jubilee Centre, built as part of the 350-home St Giles Park housing development in Cringleford, will now include a larger sports pavilion than first planned and a groundsman's store.

Developers had hoped to begin work on the site at the end of this month after receiving planning approval in December last year, but plans have seen a short delay due to the planning process for the extension.

Plans were swiftly approved by South Norfolk Council just a day after the application was submitted.

The new complex will also include changing facilities and toilets to serve the new sports pitches being provided by Big Sky at St Giles Park.

A multi-use hall on the western side of the estate will also include two badminton courts.

An opening had originally been earmarked for the end of this year, but this has now been pushed back to April 2024.

Alongside the pavilion will be a nursery school which could take up to 30 children.
