Town cadets plan for a new HQ
CADETS in Portishead could soon have a new headquarters if plans put forward are approved.
Wessex Reserve Forces and Cadets Association has submitted a planning application to demolish the old buildings in Station Road, which act as a base for both the Army Cadet Force and Air Training Corps, and replace them with new modern facilities.
The single-storey building will be built on the same site as that of the existing buildings, but will provide an additional 61 square metres of space for the cadets.
The layout has been designed to meet the needs of both user groups and will include classrooms, stores, a training hall, toilets, kitchen and offices.
It has been proposed that upon completion the new HQ is named after Portishead war hero, squadron leader Tommy Broom.
