Norfolk County Council have confirmed they have bought former airbase RAF Coltishall for £4 million
The 600 acre base was closed in 2006 and since then it's been empty.
Negotiations have been going on for years about the future of the site and what it could be used for.
Since being closed off part of the site has become Bure Prison and the old married housing has been renovated and put back on the market again, but the remainder of the base has been locked up and left unused.
In the last few years there have been several plans to purchase the base, but they have all fallen through.
In May Norfolk County Council told Heart they were close to securing a deal.
The plan is for the council to purchase the site and get it set up for several different uses.
