Following a successful pilot scheme in Framlingham, East Suffolk Council’s ‘Smart Towns’ Project will now be rolled out to 11 other towns.

 This means that other areas are set to benefit from new technology, including free WiFi and footfall tracking, to help high streets and town centres recover from the impact of Covid-19.

The project will provide free WiFi for visitors in the main shopping areas of each town, as well as providing footfall tracking technology to help town councils and business groups understand how and when residents and visitors use these areas. 

In addition to Framlingham, the scheme will now be rolled out in towns that include  Lowestoft, Beccles, Leiston, Bungay, Halesworth, Saxmundham, Southwold and Aldeburgh.

Work to roll out the scheme is to begin later this summer and be completed within two years. It is hoped that, in future, smaller towns and villages may also benefit.
