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.
There are two council run fishing ponds in the area:
You will need a permit to fish in these ponds. To apply for one you will need your 12 month rod licence number and including the junior rod licence for children age 13 to 16 years of age. The 12 month permit covers both Hardwick Heath and Newt Pond and costs £13 for an adult and £6.50 for children under 16 years of age. Ensure that you read our Angling regulations
There are also a number of private lakes where you can fish, visit Go Fish for more information.
