Wickham Market residents are invited to comment on their local Neighbourhood Plan, ahead of it being submitted for independent examination.
Wickham Market Parish Council has submitted their Neighbourhood Plan to East Suffolk Council, ahead of it undergoing an independent examination.
East Suffolk Council is publicising the plan and inviting representations, which will be forwarded to the examiners for consideration alongside the plan. Subject to the plan successfully completing all the relevant regulatory stages, the policies and proposals contained in the plan will be used by East Suffolk Council in the determination of planning applications within the Wickham Market Neighbourhood Area.
Cllr David Ritchie, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Planning and Coastal Management said: “Neighbourhood planning enables communities to influence planning proposals at a local level, helping to determine the location of new development, provide guidance for what new buildings look like and grant planning permission for particular types of development and I would therefore encourage Wickham Market residents to view the plan and submit their comments.”
Hard copies are available to view during normal opening hours at Wickham Market Library and East Suffolk Council’s Customer Service desk within Woodbridge Library.
Should there be any difficulties in accessing copies of the document, please call 01394 444557 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, comments can be emailed to email@example.com or posted to East Suffolk Council, Planning Policy and Delivery Team (Neighbourhood Plans), Riverside, 4 Canning Road, Lowestoft, Suffolk NR33 0EQ.
All representations should be headed Wickham Market Neighbourhood Plan as the subject matter. Where representations relate to a particular paragraph or policy, please ensure that this is also clearly stated. Any representations made may include a request to be notified of East Suffolk Council’s decision whether to accept the examiner’s recommendation and future progress with the plan.
Representations must be received no later than 5pm on Wednesday 21 December. All representations will be made available to view online as soon as possible after the close of the consultation.
