NEARLY 1,000 residents flocked to an exhibition highlighting a major redevelopment of Woodbridge town centre.

There was a huge response when the county council and development company G & E Woodbridge Consortium Limited displayed plans for a new primary school, library, housing, a medical centre and alterations to Oak Lane car park.

It is now expected that hundreds of surveys will be returned to the county council to assist with the public consultation.

But the Melton Grange Residents' Association has warned of three major concerns it has about the relocation of the New Street primary school to Pytches Road.

The association will outline its worries on November 2 in a meeting with the county council's education and highways departments, and the developers.

Association chairman John Garnett said a three-point action plan needs to be discussed before the association can agree with the building of the new school.

The county council wants to open the 210-pupil two-storey school within two years and to use the old building in New Street for a new library with enhanced information technology facilities including 25 computer terminals.
