Plans for the future of Babergh District Council’s former offices in Hadleigh will be unveiled for the first time this month.

Hadleigh residents are being invited to put forward their views on the plans for the district council’s former headquarters on Corks Lane at exhibitions in the town this month.

The proposals envisage a residential redevelopment of the site.

The plans will be unveiled on April 11 at the cricket pavilion on Friars Road, Hadleigh, between 3pm and 8pm, followed by a second event in the Guild Room in Hadleigh Town Hall, between 3pm and 8pm, on Wednesday April 18.

Representatives from Babergh District Council, Purcell Architects and Lawson Planning Partnership Ltd will be on hand at both events to discuss the plans and answer any questions.
