Work is well under way on a review Suffolk Coastal’s Local Plan.

The new Local Plan will guide development in the District over the next 15 to 20 years and as part of the review process, the Council is looking for sites that have the potential for new development.

Land owners and other interested parties are being invited to submit potential sites and land for consideration.

If you own or know about a site which may be suitable for new development over the next 20 years, please let us know.

Sites will be required to accommodate new housing (5+ dwellings), employment and industrial uses, retailing, community facilities, open space and more. Sites suggested for economic development should be at least 0.25 hectares or accommodate 500 sqm of floorspace. All sites received will be subject to consultation as part of future Local Plan consultations.

The call-for-sites will run from Monday 19 September until Friday 28 October 2016.

Councillor Tony Fryatt, Cabinet Member for Planning, said:

“We are facing a great challenge to find locations for the large number of homes needed in the District.

“Identifying the most suitable sites for housing, work and leisure, whilst striking the right balance between environmental protection and sustainable growth will enable the District to maintain its great quality of life offer to future generations.”
