New tenants are to be sought for an axed children’s centre in King’s Lynn.

As part of a reorganisation of its childhood and family service, Norfolk County Council announced earlier this year plans to close dozens of children’s centres with only Downham Market and the Nar Children’s Centre in South Lynn to remain open in the west.

Plans for the proposed axed centres were not revealed at the time, but now the council has given details of plans for eight of the buildings across the county, including the Vancouver Children’s Centre at Fairstead.

Four of the buildings are to be used by the county’s primary schools but new tenants are to be sought for the Centre Point building. 

The county council has said the building is to be handed back to local authorities.

A spokesman for West Norfolk Council said Alive West Norfolk, formerly Alive Leisure, and the borough council, would work together to find new tenants for the Vancouver Children’s Centre.

In a statement, the county council said it had been working with schools, childcare providers and other community groups to find alternative uses for the buildings which will no longer be children’s centres.

Earlier this month the county council revealed proposals for the Emneth Children’s Centre, based at Emneth Nursery School, which is to be handed over to the nursery to enable it to expand.

No details have yet been announced for the children’s centre at Terrington St Clement which was among those to be axed.
