SCDC will be undertaking a period of public consultation on the First Draft Plan from 20th July to 14th September 2018

In August 2017, the Council published a Local Plan Issues and Options consultation.  This document was well received and attracted over 6000 comments from approximately 650 individuals and organisations.  The Planning Policy Team and the Local Plan Working Group have been considering these consultation responses and emerging evidence to formulate the First Draft Plan.  The First Draft Plan details planning policies for the district alongside site allocations for a variety of uses which will positively support the healthy and successful communities across Suffolk Coastal.

Public consultation and engagement is an important part of the Local Plan process and throughout the consultation period a series of drop in venues have been arranged.  These drop in sessions are open to anybody who wishes to find out more about the consultation and are being held in the following venues on the dates listed below:
