Plans for Belle Vue Park entrance submitted » Babergh Mid Suffolk
A planning application for a new entrance to Belle Vue Park in Sudbury has been submitted by Babergh District Council.
The proposed new entrance will create an open, accessible, and welcoming space for visitors to the park. Featuring landscaping, new seating and a focal point for public art installations, the new entrance will be an attractive new space for the town and the community.
The new entrance is part of a wider investment in Belle Vue Park which will also see new play areas and equipment, improved accessibility through the park as well as a new café and toilet facilities.
The planning application has incorporated feedback from the public engagement event that was held in person and online in autumn last year and ongoing work with stakeholders. Over 250 people from Sudbury and the surrounding area commented on the way they use the park and what improvements they would like to see.
Cllr Michael Holt, Babergh District Council’s cabinet member for economic growth, said:
“It has long been an ambition of Babergh District Council’s cabinet to invest in Belle Vue Park to ensure that the park remains a space for residents, families and visitors to Sudbury. These plans will not only create a welcoming entrance to the park but will better connect the park with the town centre.”
In addition to a new entrance, Babergh District Council will soon be submitting a second planning application for a new café and toilet facilities, including a changing places standard facility.
Over the last few years, Belle Vue Park has benefited from significant investment including a new multi-use games area and skatepark as well as new play equipment and landscaping in the children’s play area.
