Development management (planning permission)
Charges introduced for pre-application planning advice - in line with many other local authorities, Suffolk Coastal has introduced charging for providing pre-application planning advice, effective from 1 October 2014. Follow this link for details of how to apply and the charges.
Community Infrastructure Levy - the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a new standard charge which local authorities in England and Wales can charge on most types of new development in their area. We have consulted on the draft CIL Charging Schedule and have now formally submitted documents to the Planning Inspectorate for examination. We expect to introduce CIL across Suffolk Coastal by April 2015.
New planning applications search - Suffolk Coastal has moved over to a new system for searching, tracking and commenting on planning applications called Public Access which is shared with Waveney District Council - go to the planning applications search page.
