A BLUEPRINT for the possible future of a market town will be going on show.

Mid Suffolk District Council has commissioned A Vision for Stowmarket and its findings are the result of extensive consultation with the community.

It hopes the suggestions will fuel further public interest and debate and will see businesses and residents taking an active part in shaping their town and its surroundings.

Far from painting a glossy picture of Stowmarket's current state, it acknowledges the town has weaknesses – such as an "uninspiring town centre, few hi-tech companies and with key employment sectors in decline" – as well as strengths, including "strong schools, a good location and transport links and a high quality of life".
