Council seeks to buy ex-RAF base in Coltishall, Norfolk

Norfolk County Council has expressed an interest in buying part of a redundant RAF base.

RAF Coltishall closed in 2006 and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) opened HMP Bure, a prison for sex offenders, on the site in 2009.

The council wants to buy the remaining 600 acres from the MoJ, and has plans to build homes along with an agriculture and engineering facility.
