Why not make one of your new year’s resolutions to spend more time outside? The Town Council has recently completed the refurbishment of the play area at Nightingale Road, is now looking at options for installing adult outdoor gym equipment at Normanston Park and funding has been applied for to revamp the Whitton Green area. We want our open spaces to be enjoyed by all as places to be active, to socialise or for quiet relaxation. Whether it be the installation of new benches, play equipment or planting schemes, the Town Council is improving facilities in Lowestoft for all to enjoy. We are continuing to consider public toilets, how they can be improved and when they should be open. Your ideas on all the above are very welcome.

The Town Council has to submit its precept request to the billing authority by 24 January. The precept is the amount of money received by the Town Council from household Council Tax bills. At the Full Council meeting at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 21 January, the Council will finalise the budget for 2020/21 and agree the level of precept to request. Any views on this should be submitted to the address below before this date please and members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting.
