Plans for a new indoor swimming pool in Swaffham have been approved by Breckland Council.

The proposals, submitted by qualified swimming teacher Karen Bromley, will see the new two floor facility including a 6 x 4 metre pool built in an old industrial unit on Turbine Way.

It will be used for a private business offering swimming lessons and other recreational activities such as baby massage and yoga.
