An interactive online feature has been launched for the public to track progress on the implementation of the Suffolk Coastal and Waveney Local Plans.

The Open Data Portal also hosts an interactive online map of Planning Policies across East Suffolk, including those from the Suffolk Coastal and Waveney Local Plans and Neighbourhood Plans and the Brownfield Land Register.
