The Town Council is concerned about pedestrian safety in the Market. To ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit, Suffolk County Council has agreed to our request (see map overleaf) to install a TEMPORARY closure of the “Market square” on Friday mornings which will allow the market to spread out for pedestrian safety. The other end of Market Place will be made 2-way all-day every-day to allow access to the Doctor’s Surgery and other addresses.
This is a temporary measure in response to an unprecedented event, so it is inevitable that it will need some fine-tuning. We would therefore welcome your feedback on how it works.

The Hadleigh Society is leading a project with the Town Council to identify a “Local List” of buildings that are special to our town’s heritage. The society is seeking public involvement in the project and has created a web page www.hadsoc.org.uk/local_list.htm that explains what Local List buildings are, and what criteria are used to identify them. Around 180 properties so far have been identified by the society as potentially eligible for inclusion in the Local List, and there is a link to a Nomination Form for the public to submit for other buildings they think may be worthy of inclusion.

It's that time of year again when we receive enquiries about grit bins, so we thought it might be helpful to clarify who's responsible for them. Suffolk County Council looks after the grit bins and Suffolk Highways replenishes them at the start of Winter and at such intervals that it considers to be appropriate, based on resources and priorities.
