Work starts on new centre
WORK on the redevelopment of a town centre building has begun.
Developers moved into the Old School Building in Brandon on Monday as part of its transformation into the Brandon Centre.
The centre will incorporate a range of community facilities when it is completed.
These include a Forest Heath District Council access point, Brandon Police Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), a children’s centre, Brandon Library and public toilets.
It is hoped the first phase of services will open to the public by March 2013.
It will be run by charity, the Keystone Development Trust, and Neil Stott, chief executive, said it was a ‘fabulous opportunity’ for the town.
“We will be working with residents closely to ensure the building remains a strong community resource,” he said.
Bill Bishop, Suffolk county councillor for Brandon, said it was a ‘magnificent achievement’.
“Something like this has been long overdue and I’m pleased it’s finally happening. It’s fantastic to renovate this beautiful building in the heart of Brandon,” he said.
