Contractor to clear youth centre asbestos
Potentially dangerous asbestos should be cleared from Diss Youth and Community Centre within three or four weeks allowing work to be completed on a series of improvements.
A contractor has been appointed to carry out the work.
The refurbishments include new flooring, blinds and a suspended ceiling to make it more energy efficient, said town clerk Deborah Sarson.
Concern had been raised last month after workmen replacing windows in the Shelfhanger Road centre found the asbestos in panels surrounding windows.
The building was closed temporarily but the bottom floor was re-opened within days after tests showed there were only minimal asbestos levels.
