Saxmundham Town Council survey of 2001

500 households responded to general questionnaire

Extensive youth consultation survey undertaken

‘Community Profile’ analysis report produced

Little of this was acted upon because no

organisation existed to create an action plan and

take up the issues identified

Increased diversity and number of small shops (although loss of Co-op)
