Parking Strategy for the town – on Street parking
East Suffolk Council will be sending out a consultation about on- street parking during August and September – their proposed scheme introduces permit parking throughout the town, and everyone is encouraged to respond.
Off street parking
In relation to car parks the car park at Godyll Road/ Gardner Road will become a 4-hour short stay car park (probably starting in September), and the town council is working with other parking providers including the Millennium Trust, East Suffolk Council and the Common Trust in respect of the local provision of longer-term parking.
Ferry Road Garden
work is continuing on recreating a sensory garden in this area. With financial assistance from Suffolk County Council, the town council, and individuals, it is hoped that that this will again become an area for all to enjoy.
Southwold Neighbourhood Plan
The Regulation 16 consultation process has now been completed and the Neighbourhood Plan is now on its way to the Inspection stage.
The planning cttee continues to meet fortnightly to look at all the applications submitted for works throughout the town. The cttee respond to each application – advising East Suffolk Council of the local aspect and considerations of each, to ensure that ESC is aware of local views before making their decision on each.
The Town Council has increased the amount it is allocating to assist local groups this year – and was pleased to be able to help the Southwold Arts Centre with a contribution to their new audio system, and The Old Hospital Hub with a contribution for the creation of the library at the new premises, who both applied in May. The next round of applications will be invited in September.
Gallopers on Klondyke
The gallopers are here again for August for people to enjoy.
