Plans have been revealed for a new multi-million heritage and research centre for Suffolk.
The building would be a joint project between the county council and University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich.
It would create a new records office with enough space for another 20 years of archives, teaching rooms and a 200-seat auditorium.
If approved by councillors, a heritage lottery grant bid will be submitted later this year.
"UCS welcomes the planned new heritage facility at the Ipswich campus. This will strengthen our existing plans to grow our heritage teaching and research, and will be a major boost to the local heritage community. The project will continue the transformation of the waterfront area, and will be a major factor in the development of heritage tourism in the town. The improved access to archive collections will provide many new opportunities for students and academic staff, and will raise the profile of UCS as a major centre for heritage studies"
A decision to close nine children's centres in Suffolk has been challenged by the county's opposition councillors.
Last week, the County Council voted to close the sites to save £250,000 despite protests from parents.
However that decision has now been referred back to the authority's scrutiny committee by Labour councillors who claim government guidelines were not considered ahead of the vote.
