East Suffolk Shadow Authority

Orders have been signed into law which abolished the former districts of Suffolk Coastal and Waveney and created one, new district-level council for East Suffolk. The new council was created on 1 April 2019.

It should be noted that the parliamentary process to create the new council continues as there will be orders laid in parliament during the Summer to enable:

  • transfer of functions
  • transfer of properties, rights and liabilities
  • continuity for references in enactments
  • continuity in relation to plans, schemes, statements and strategies
  • accounts of predecessor councils and other financial matters
