Residents on the Howard Estate in Bury St Edmunds will be able to find out more about the latest proposals for a new community centre in a second consultation event next week.

Suffolk County Council, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Newbury Community Association have progressed plans for a new and expanded centre in St Olaves Road with housing on the current primary school and community centre sites to help pay towards it.

Views gathered from the first consultation in June have informed new plans, which the partners are seeking further opinions on. Information about the proposals will be available for viewing at Newbury Community Centre on Thursday, between 2.30pm and 6.30pm.

Representatives from the councils and community association will be there to answer any questions, and to hear residents’ views.

A survey is also available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/5ZGNH2K until December 16.
