The New Projects Team was set up to spearhead the Club’s ambition of providing a new clubhouse and associated improvements for its members at the existing site. It has been agreed that we should aim high with our wish list for the redevelopment of the site and provide the best possible facilities with the funds that become available.
Club representatives recently met with Mid Suffolk District Council officials, who have set up their own project team to help guide and support the Social Club with making a successful planning application. The meeting was very positive and consultations are now underway with other interested parties in order to agree basic principles and identify potential problems. Some issues have already been resolved, such as agreement with the local Highways Authority regarding access improvements to the site.
When we have received responses to our present consultations, another meeting will be arranged with Mid Suffolk Planners to discuss how we should progress to the next stage. In the meantime we are actively looking at ways of raising funds for the improvement works and would ask all our members to support any events or activities run for this purpose.
Updates will be posted as further progres is made.
