Plans for £600,000 visitor centre and café at Needham Lake to go on show




Plans for a £600,000 visitor centre and café at Needham Lake have taken a step forward.

Blueprints are being developed for an environmentally sustainable building to include a café and new public toilets, at the most visited free attraction in the East of England in 2018 (Visit England).

The new facility should help to boost the number of visitors, support the local economy and encourage more people to enjoy outdoor leisure pursuits.

The plans will go on show to the community at the Burton Room, Needham Market Community Centre, on October 10, from 4-7pm.

Cllr Julie Flatman, Mid Suffolk District Council cabinet member for communities and housing, said: “The lake is a wonderful attraction and we want more people to be able to enjoy it.

"It is important this project reflects the view of the community and I encourage everyone to come along and have their say, to help enhance the facilities and build on the reputation the lake already has."
