CONSULTATIONS will begin shortly about the future use of a redundant school site in Gorleston. Local people will be asked how they feel the former Peterhouse First School could be used once pupils and staff move into new buildings on the former middle school site.

A multi-million-pound building project, triggered by the school reorganisation, will include a new nursery and reception classrooms, a new entrance and offices, new kitchen and dining areas and outdoor learning areas.
The �3.4m project also includes a new learning centre for pupils and the community. It starts this summer, and Norfolk County Council expects the project to be finished by 2010. Some of the facilities will be available to hire out of hours, including the hall and IT centre.

The council's preferred option is to sell the site to provide cash to support the new buildings on the middle school site. The playing field would be kept for school use.
Any proposals to dispose of the site will be dealt with in consultation with Great Yarmouth Borough Council and local people, and a final decision will be made by the county council's cabinet.
