There’s still time for people to have their say on the historic centre of a coastal town.

Residents, businesses and interested parties are being asked for their views on draft design guidance for the North Lowestoft Heritage Action Zone (HAZ).

People can still give their views, which includes ideas to improve the public realm and help ensure any future works respect the historic character of the area, as a six-week consultation continues until Friday, January 24.

The North Lowestoft HAZ is a project carried out in partnership with Historic England, Lowestoft Town Council and East Suffolk Building Preservation Trust which will run until the end of March 2023.

Following the consultation, the council will consider the comments received prior to finalising the document next year.
