A condemned site near Lowestoft is set to be transformed into a community play area with a £50,000 government grant.

The hard-court site in Morton Road, Pakefield, will be turned into a play and social area for local schools, youth clubs and sports teams.

The new play area will have hard courts for ball games as well as storage space, a seating area, nets and goals. The Morton Road youth club voluntary support group will help to get the work under way this year.

Asa Morrison, Waveney District Council's principal service manager for culture, tourism and sport, said: “Our surveys identified that there was not much open play space in Pakefield, so this will provide an accessible community facility.

“The money is good news. This will be a total redevelopment of an almost forgotten corner of Pakefield which had fallen into disrepair.”
