Suffolk Coastal Local Plan

The Suffolk Coastal Local Plan covers the former Suffolk Coastal District area. The plan sets out how the area should be developed, and is the starting point when making decisions on planning applications within that part of the District.

Development is also guided by the  National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) which is supplemented by the Planning Practice GuidanceNeighbourhood plans, once made, also form part of the development plan.
