A new police station could be built in Stalham in the next few months, just yards from the current one.
Norfolk police want to move across to the other side of Yarmouth Road and on to what is currently agricultural land, formerly part of Church Farm.
Known in police speak as an operational deployment base, the station will be shared with the East of England Ambulance Service for the deployment of ambulances.
It is the latest move in the force's long term estate strategy, which has recently seen new stations built in Aylsham, Cromer and Wells.
The new Stalham station, which will be single storey, with a flat roof and about the same size as the existing station but on a larger area of land, will also have a 15 metre tall communications antenna on the site.
A planning application has been submitted to North Norfolk District Council and will be considered in the next few weeks.
