On 1 April 2019 Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council will be replaced by a single district council called West Suffolk Council. It will entirely replace the borough and district councils but will continue to deliver the same services while finding improved ways of supporting communities, businesses and the local economy. Over the next few weeks you may notice changes to the website, forms, letters and emails as we prepare for the creation of the new council.
In 2016 Forest Heath District Council bought a solar farm in Lakenheath.
As central government funding continues to be reduced councils need to invest in projects which will deliver savings or produce and income. The solar farm generates income which will be used to help support the future delivery of council services in West Suffolk. This is part of our wider Community Energy Plan.
