Suffolk Coastal District Local Plan
Neighbourhood Area applications - applications have been submitted for three new Neighbourhood Areas in Martlesham, Woodbridge and Wenhaston. Comments are invited over six week consultation periods. Please note that Neighbourhood Area designations are for Planning Policy purposes only and have no impact on existing town and parish administrative boundaries.
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.
Suffolk Coastal is drawing up a new District Local Plan setting out the planning policies, proposals and actions for the future development of our district to 2027 and beyond.
The new District Local Plan will form a key part of the Development Plan against which all planning applications and other development proposals will be assessed.
The Development Plan consists of the following documents:
- National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) - produced by the Department for Communities & Local Government
- Suffolk Coastal District Local Plan - consisting of:
- Suffolk Coastal Local Plan 'saved' policies
- Suffolk Coastal Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPGs)
- Minerals and Waste Development Framework - produced by Suffolk County Council
