A former military hut which has been home to Needham Market Scout group for 40 years could be demolished to make way for a new building, if plans are approved.
The old hut is “no longer fit for purpose”, according to the Needham Market Scout group, in an application to replace it with a new purpose-built centre.
It is currently located at the end of Crown Street.
The old building was a former military hut which was moved to the site around 40 years ago.
If the plans are approved, the new building is hoped to provide a “modern” space to house the group for “years to come”.
The application concludes: “The proposed replacement scout hut will enhance the services provided in Needham Market by providing a better building for scouting and other local events whilst not harming the character of the area all while helping to improve the environment through reduced emissions.”
