Suffolk Chamber of Commerce in Bury St Edmunds is urging people to get involved with a masterplan which will shape the future of the town.

The draft town centre consultation is now in its final two weeks and a series of 11 public engagement events have now finished.

Simon Burton, vice chairman of the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, said: “The future of our town centre and how it evolves and adapts to the challenges not just in population, but changes in retail trends and technology, while retaining its appeal is critical to the town’s success.

“That is why the chamber has been so heavily involved in this project from the outset and why we are encouraging anyone with a local business, and indeed their staff, to get involved with the draft masterplan and take the time to help shape out town’s future. What they say now could really make the difference.”

The draft masterplan consultation is open until September 8, click here to take part.
