Little Downham Village Hall is to get a new lease of life under plans submitted this week.

Patti Quant has applied to East Cambridgeshire District Council to carry out a renovation and reorganisation of the building, in Main Street.

The building was last refurbished in the 1970s and is in need of modernisation.

It is planned to build a new kitchen in the hall to “promote the business for weddings and parties”. Plans are also afoot to relocate the toilets, create a library and meeting room, and replace an existing flat roof with a pitched one.

A spokesman said: “Our proposals will not impact the original front building and the use of materials will also match in with the existing so as not to impact on the main building.

“There will be no creation in floor space, just dividing the existing layout in a more useful way to maximise the potential of the building and attract more of the village people to use it.”

A decision on the plans is expected in the next eight weeks. To view the plans, visit www.eastcambs.gov.uk
