Lowestoft Town Council are launching a public consultation on proposals to take out a Public Works Loan (PWL) of £4million to part-fund the Town Hall regeneration project.  The consultation will run from Friday 3rd November – Sunday 19th November with the survey and supporting information available to complete and read online or by attending drop-in events.

Members of the public are encouraged to complete a short survey on the proposals which include details of the Town Hall’s proposed designs and the supporting funding plans. 

As part of the consultation period, two drop-in sessions have been organised with members of the Town Hall Project Team and Design Team available to answer any questions.  The first session is on Friday 3rd November, 2pm-5pm at The Kirkley Centre, with a second session organised for Thursday 9th November, 3pm-6:30pm at 3 St Peter’s Street (on the Triangle Market).  Following the drop-in sessions, a window display will remain at the Triangle Market site until the conclusion of the consultation.

This loan will add to the already secured funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund, Towns Fund and East Suffolk Council for delivery of the project.  The cost of paying back the loan will not in itself trigger a rise in the council tax amount paid to the Town Council by the electorate within the parish of Lowestoft.

More details on the Town Hall Project can also be found on our website.
