The new hub will also house partnership agencies, such as the Prince's Trust and the police, and it will work closely with secondary schools on developing pupils' entrepreneurial skills.

Futters is due to move to another site in the town and Yarmouth Borough Council will discuss the new centre plans in the next few months.
