Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan

Leisure recreation & culture

Saxmundham has a lively leisure and recreation scene (including sports) but lacks modern and purpose-built facilities.  There is also no cultural or artistic hub, despite many talented people living in and near the town.  The Neighbourhood Plan gives an opportunity to work up ideas and plans for enhancing our leisure and cultural facilities and “offer”.
