A former pupil referral unit in March is to be re-developed by the county council into nine flats.
Fenland Junction was described as "time expired and not fit for purpose" and missed out on the Building Schools for the Future project that brought widespread improvements to Fenland schools.
Now the county council has transferred ownership to its stand alone property company This Land for re-development as housing.
Once known as County School, the site next door to the community centre has been empty for several years and boarded up.
Now with plans before Fenland Council for conversion, its future is more assured with a structural report part of proposals submitted for approval.

Cllr Count said: "We project for future need and generally get new capacity built in time.
"This small building no longer lends itself readily to that type of use."
