A BLUEPRINT for the future of Stowmarket, which includes a radical overhaul to rejuvenate the town centre, has been unveiled.

But the project, which includes refurbishment of the Regal Cinema, changes to the Museum of East Anglian Life and a new community centre for Cedars Park, will need funding and concerns have been raised about where the money will come from.

A BLUEPRINT for the future of Stowmarket, which includes a radical overhaul to rejuvenate the town centre, has been unveiled.

But the project, which includes refurbishment of the Regal Cinema, changes to the Museum of East Anglian Life and a new community centre for Cedars Park, will need funding and concerns have been raised about where the money will come from.

The civic trust's proposals were unveiled at a meeting of Stowmarket Town Centre Forum and the town council within the last few days.

The report, commissioned by Mid Suffolk District Council and the Town Centre Forum, suggests completely revamping the Corn Exchange, cinema and museum.

It also suggests strengthening the town's market, pedestrianising of the Market Place and improving the Regal Cinema.

The final version of the report, incorporating long term ideas, will not be finished until February to allow time for public consultation.
