It has been an exciting start to the week, with our Building Solutions team embarking on a new restoration project at the former 1880’s built Post Office at Lowestoft. Bringing it back to its former glory, works on this Grade II listed building will include fixing the slate roof, repairing the sash windows and carrying out conservation of stonework on the façade.
We are delighted to be working on this unique restoration project and playing our part in the council’s regeneration of this heritage-rich town.
Councillor Craig Rivett, East Suffolk’s deputy leader and cabinet member for Economic Development said: “This restoration work will greatly improve the appearance of this symbolic Lowestoft building and ensure it can be enjoyed in years to come. We are also looking forward to inviting local residents to learn more about heritage conservation as part of this restoration work.”
The project is funded through the London Road, Lowestoft High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ), Historic England and East Suffolk Council and delivered in partnership with Lowestoft Town Council and East Suffolk Building Preservation Trust.
