A full meeting of Suffolk Coastal District Council voted unanimously on 17th July 2018 to approve the Neighbourhood Plan (in legal terms the plan was "Made") following the successful referendum of 24th May 2018. This means the Martlesham Neighbourhood Plan must be taken into account by our local Planning Authority (East Suffolk District Council) when deciding planning applications in the Martlesham Neighbourhood Plan area.

The final version of the Neighbourhood Plan is now available through the East Suffolk Council website together with all the supporting archive documentation  Martlesham Neighbourhood Plan  

Please note: Now that the project to create the Neighbourhood Plan has concluded, we no longer maintain nor update the Neighbourhood Plan website we used, however it remains available to view Martlesham NP website.  Future issues arising from the plan will now fall under the umbrella of the Parish Council as part of the 'Neighbourhood Plan Plus!' initiative.
