A former Army Cadets centre in Norwich could become a care home after plans were put forward to convert it.

Neil Farrow has applied to Norwich City Council to turn the interior of the Cadet Training Centre in Hilary Avenue, near Mousehold Heath, into rooms for six live-in occupants.

The two-storey building is currently being used as a store for Ordermatic Carbon Reduction Limited, Mr Farrow's company.

Inside is 530sqft of floor space which would see four bathrooms, six bedrooms, a kitchen and a living space installed if the application is successful. 

Outside is space for six cars and the care home would employ three full-time workers.

According to the Norfolk Record Office, the training centre was built for the MOD between June 1994 and January 1995.

It is unknown when it closed for use as an Army Cadets headquarters, however.

As part of the application, a bat survey was carried out to determine if they were roosting in the roof, but no signs of bats were found.
