Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan

Town centre

Saxmundham town centre is the historic heart of the town, where much of its economic and business activity has always been located. Though the two large supermarkets attract many from near and far, too few are drawn to make the short journey to the High Street or beyond.  With technological and lifestyle changes and online competition, it is essential to look in depth at the challenges facing town centres – and what can draw residents and visitors into a lively, thriving central Saxmundham.
