Seventeen care homes could be sold by Norfolk County Council – for just £1 each.
The council owns the homes, based in various locations across the county.
County Hall currently lets the homes to its own arms-length company Norse Care, which provides social care to people living in the residential homes, but council officers say it makes sense to simply transfer the freehold for the homes to Norse Care.
Norse Care would continue to run the homes following the transfer.
