Important Notice for all Residents - The following correspondence has been recieved - HAVE YOUR SAY
Dear Parish Councils
Have your say: Suffolk’s Energy Gateway
I am writing to inform you about a consultation that will open on Tuesday 12 September about Suffolk’s Energy Gateway, specifically the proposed new road to by-pass the villages of Farnham, Stratford St Andrew, Little Glemham and Marlesford on the A12.
The scheme is designed to provide a modern high quality road to enable, support and deliver economic growth in East Suffolk and enhance the quality of life for local people. Should the scheme be delivered, the existing road will remain open for local traffic, providing access to the four villages and local businesses.
It is very important that local residents, businesses and community groups get involved in this consultation to ensure that all local views and opinions are represented in the business case that Suffolk County Council must submit to Government before the end of 2017.
Two public exhibitions have been organised to give local communities an opportunity to see the proposals in detail and find out more about the benefits of the scheme. Members of the project team will be on hand to answer questions.
The exhibitions will be held at the Riverside Centre in Stratford St Andrew (6 Great Glemham Rd, Stratford St Andrew, Saxmundham IP17 1LL) on the following days:
- Wednesday 20 September 2017 - 10am to 6pm
- Saturday 23 September 2017 - 10am to 6pm
In addition, from 12 September, all information will be available online at: www.suffolk.gov.uk/consultations.
The consultation will close on 25 October 2017.
Please share with other persons / parties in the area that you think may be interested.

Blaxhall is a secluded village consisting of 123 houses with an electoral roll of 178 households.
The village is situated approximately 2 miles off the A12 halfway between Woodbridge and Aldeburgh. The famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is only one mile away. The village no longer has a shop or post office but these can be found either at Campsea-Ashe or Snape, there is a farm shop within 2 miles of the village.
The village school built in 1881 by John Sheppard, during the early part of the last century had an average attendance of 100 pupils but was closed in 1976. This is where George Ewert Evans lived when he wrote the famous book “Ask The Fellows Who Cut The Hay”, the old school is now a very distinctive Youth Hostel housing 48 beds. The hostel has been completely revamped recently and modernised with disabled access and accommodation.
