Stowmarket Town Council is working with the Suffolk Football Association and other partners including Suffolk County Council to examine the feasibility of providing a full size artificial football pitch with car parking and changing facilities in the town.

Councillor Nick Gowrley said; “Stowmarket has some excellent sports clubs, many of which are looking to improve their facilities. We are very fortunate to have the headquarters of Suffolk FA here in the town and believe that an effective partnership has been formed with Suffolk FA that can deliver a much-needed all weather football pitch for people of all ages. I would add that we are also examining options for other sports in Stowmarket.”

The project is part of the Town Council’s place shaping agenda which is seeking to provide more and better amenities for Stowmarket in response to the town’s rapid expansion
