Martlesham neighbourhood area

Please be advised that Martlesham Parish Council, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) have submitted their neighbourhood plan to Suffolk Coastal District Council ahead of it being submitted for independent examination. 

Suffolk Coastal is now required (Regulation 16) to publicise details of the plan proposal and invite representations over a minimum six week period ahead of the submission of the plan to independent examination.  Representations received at this stage will be forwarded to the independent assessor for consideration alongside the submitted neighbourhood plan documents. 

Hard copies of the documents have been made available for viewing at:

Representations are invited over the period:

Friday 7th July 2017 to 18th August 2017.

Any representations should be received by the Council by 5.00pm on 18th August 2017.

All submitted representations will be collated and will be made publically available as soon as possible after the close of the consultation period.

Representations on the plan proposal (including supporting documents) should be sent via letter or email to: 

Attn: Mr Conor Crowther

Planning Policy and Delivery Team (Neighbourhood Plans)

East Suffolk House

Station Road



IP12 1RT 


All representations should be headed MARTLESHAM NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN as the subject matter.  Where comments 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 regarding Suffolk Coastal District decision under Regulation 19 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulation 2012 whether to accept the Examiners’ recommendation and future progress with the plan.   Progress with the plan following independent examination would normally involve consideration of any modifications recommended by the examiner, referendum, and subject to a positive vote at referendum, Suffolk Council then “making” the plan at which point it would become part of the statutory development plan for that part of the district.
