Lowestoft Town Council has a strong commitment to Lowestoft’s heritage and locally-significant archive collections and is concerned about the threatened closure of the Records Office in Lowestoft. The Town Council is pleased that the decision has been put on hold and hopes this indicates that there is due recognition to the importance of maintaining and safeguarding relevant records locally. The Town Council is always watchful and concerned when policy positions appear to favour Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds and should changes proceed, would wish to see full recognition not only of the importance of local heritage but also the need to ensure local people are able to access this information. The Council, newly created in 2017, will be greatly disappointed if there is not meaningful consultation with the Council and the community about the options which might now be explored to ensure preservation, enhancement and accessibility of Lowestoft’s heritage collections. The Council continues to monitor developments at the Records Office and to consider the impact any changes might have on Lowestoft library. The Council would welcome any views from local people.
