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 Town Council is concerned about pedestrian safety in the High Street. To ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit, Suffolk County Council has developed a plan (see link) to install a TEMPORARY one-way measure which will allow the footpaths to be wider for pedestrian safety when the street is busy. A 20mph speed limit will be in force, and there will be some restrictions on parking, but residents’ access, disabled parking, deliveries and emergency access will be available throughout the intervention. This is a temporary measure in response to an unprecedented event, so it is inevitable that it will need some fine-tuning over the coming days. We would therefore welcome your feedback on how it works.

The FULL COUNCIL Meeting link:
Earlier this week, Hadleigh Town Council organised Planning Advisory Committee (8th April) and Town Matters Committee (9th April) meetings to be held by email, which was a practical measure in the absence of official Government process/procedures about how to conduct non-physical meetings. Less than 48 hours after posting the agendas, the Government produced legislation that clarified that remote meetings should be held via videoconferencing/streaming technology. Therefore, the Planning Advisory Committee and Town Matters Committee meetings are CANCELLED.
The Town Council has approved the launch of an exciting new project to explore the feasibility of upgrading the sports facilities at its site at Layham Road.
