The Local Plan review is supported by an evidence base covering housing, employment and retail, the natural and historic environment, viability and commercial leisure.

A Local Plan Working Group was established to help facilitate the Local Plan Review work.

Ongoing, joint working in relation to cross-boundary matters is taking place through the Ipswich Strategic Planning Area Board. The authorities have produced a Statement of Common Ground which documents this co-operation.
