New riverside homes, improvements to the town centre, developing South Beach, a shopping mall and new leisure facilities are just some of the ideas put forward to regenerate Lowestoft.
Following an announcement by the Government last year of a £3.6billion Towns Fund, 101 UK places – including Lowestoft – are looking to negotiate a ‘Towns Deal’ with up to £25 million available to bid for.
And with residents being encouraged to have their say and give ideas for projects, there is just under a week left for people to submit your views.
Street markets, a tram service, better shops and better roads have also been suggested – and you can have your say on how you think the money should be spent via mytown.communities.gov.uk/town/lowestoft/#A post on the East Council Facebook page said: “There’s still time to submit your ideas!
“Plenty of suggestions have already been made for future investment in the town.”
The closing date for contributions is September 10.
