The Town Council's complaint to Suffolk County Council can be read at
POSTED ON 21st OCTOBER 2018 —
Suffolk County Council announced on 21st Sept that the Consultation into the future of Lowestoft Record Office is open until 11:59pm on 1st Nov.
The Save our Record Office Group are not happy with the proposal as Suffolk County Council have indicated that they will not provide a new strong room at the Lowestoft Record Office and the majority of records will be taken to new Heritage Centre at Ipswich Record Office and the new building at The Hold.
Work has currently started on The Hold which is the new Record Office that is due to open in late 2019. This project which is partly funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund is to replace the current Ipswich Record Office as well as hold part of the archives that are currently held at Bury St Edmunds.
