New plans showing how Babergh District Council intends to develop East House, the town’s former community centre it owns, go on show next week.

The council is holding a public exhibition showing a revised proposal after it withdrew its previous planning application following an outcry over public open space provision.

Campaigners are fighting to stop homes being built on Cox’s Park – land to the rear of the listed house in George Street.

But the revised plan still includes plans to build on the land, and for two apartments in the house.

A spokeswoman said: “These are only proposals and we do want people to see the plans and give us their feedback.”

The exhibition will take place at Hadleigh leisure centre, in Stonehouse Road, on Friday, November 8, from 10am to 4pm, with plans available to view in the reception area the following day.

The council still intends to use funds from the sale of East House towards the costs of the leisure centre, and said it remained committed to the project.

Anyone unable to attend the exhibition can view the proposal on the council’s website from November 11.
