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, and there will be limited access to some of our online systems as we prepare for the creation of the new council.
Metal detecting is permitted on three of our council owned sites.
You can apply online for a 12 month metal detecting permit covering all three sites costing £28. Refer to the site maps above that show the areas that can be used for metal detecting. Make sure that you read our metal detecting terms and conditions
