A Buddhist retreat could soon be open for meditation and religious festivals. Murray Wright, a senior ordained Buddhist, has applied for retrospective planning permission for the place of worship at his home in Mill Road, Hardingham.

The retreat is set around a pond water meadow and stream leading to Blackwater Creek and includes a meditation area, shrine, and sleeping living area for three to six people.

Mr Wright and up to five of his meditation students will use the centre for solitary retreats of between one week and two months, daily meditation practice and occasional religious festivals, which would also involve no more than three to five people.
