Local residents are invited to comment on the Southwold Neighbourhood Plan, ahead of it being submitted for independent examination.
Southwold Town Council has submitted their Neighbourhood Plan to East Suffolk Council to be publicised and to invite comments from local residents. These comments will be sent to the examiner 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 Southwold Neighbourhood Area.
Cllr David Ritchie, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Planning and Coastal Management said: “Neighbourhood planning enables local communities to get directly involved with shaping the areas in which they live and work. I would encourage those living in the Southwold area to view the plan and submit their comments.”
