A £300,000 investment in Kegworth’s village hall is being considered by the county council.
The authority’s ruling cabinet will consider whether to fund an extension to the village hall and sell the existing community centre.
Leicestershire County Council reviewed the future of its community centre after ending the adult learning classes it used to run there.
It is now proposing to invest in improving the nearby village hall and, once that is complete, relocate youth services and other groups there.
The centre would be sold and the proceeds used to fund the £300,000 cost of extending the village hall.
Blake Pain, cabinet member for communities, said: “We’ve had a positive reaction from the local community to these plans, which should make the village hall more popular than ever.”
The cabinet will discuss the issue at 2pm on Wednesday, March 6th.
