Saxmundham residents are invited to comment on their local Neighbourhood Plan, ahead of it being submitted for independent examination.
Saxmundham Town 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 Saxmundham Neighbourhood Area.
Cllr David Ritchie, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Planning and Coastal Management said: “Neighbourhood planning enables communities to influence and take forward 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. I would encourage Saxmundham residents to view the plan and submit their comments.”
All representations will be made available to view online as soon as possible after the close of the consultation.
This consultation is now closed.
