SCDC Local Plan

Following last years consultation, on Tuesday 10th July 2018, the Local Plan First Draft was considered and agreed by Suffolk Coastal Cabinet and published for public consultation starting on Friday 20th July for a period of 8 weeks.

The allocation may be for residential or employment purposes and may either be an allocation that is carried forward from the existing Local Plan (Site Allocations DPD or Felixstowe Peninsula AAP) or a new allocation.  The time to comment on the document will be during the consultation period, but we wanted to highlight the Cabinet report to local communities with site allocations at the earliest possible time.

If you have any questions, please contact a Parish Councillor or the Parish Clerk.

Proposed Conservation Area in Kelsale

The public consultation on the proposed conservation area closed on July 16th and SCDC are collating all the responses which they have gratefully received. SCDC are currently re-considering the position of the proposed conservation area boundary and undertaking some further appraisal of the area. This work will involve some more time before a revised conservation area proposal is then presented to the Cabinet of the District Council for its approval later this year.

SCDC will use the page below (see link) to update interested residents and other parties of progress.

Council Ward Boundaries for East Suffolk – Local Government Boundary Commission for England Consultation

In May 2018, the government agreed to set up a new local authority called East Suffolk District Council.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is now drawing up ward boundaries for the new authority in time for its first elections in May 2019.

Today (3rd July 2018) they published draft recommendations for the new ward, ward boundaries, and ward names for East Suffolk District Council.

They are minded to recommend that 55 councillors should be elected to East Suffolk Council.

They are now inviting comments on those recommendations. Their consultation closes on 27 August 2018
