BABERGH AND MID SUFFOLK JOINT LOCAL PLAN CONSULTATION (July 2019)

 

Babergh District Council and Mid Suffolk District Council are undertaking a second round of consultation on a new Joint Local Plan. The consultation period runs from 22nd July 2019 until 4pm on 30th September 2019. This consultation is part of the initial stages of plan production and is being carried out under Regulation 18 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Plan) (England) Regulations 2012.

 

The Joint Local Plan will inform how our Districts will develop over the next 18 years. It will establish how much housing and land for businesses will be needed and where it will go, alongside protecting and enhancing the environment and delivering infrastructure.
