he Martlesham Neighbourhood Plan was approved in 2018 and must be taken into account by the Planning Authority (East Suffolk District Council formerly Suffolk Coastal District Council) when deciding planning applications in the Martlesham Neighbourhood Plan area.
It forms part of the Development Plan for the East Suffolk District.
The final version of the Plan is now available HERE where all the supporting documentation is also archived.
The Neighbourhood Plan website remains HERE, but please note that it will not be updated following the conclusion of the project. Future issues arising from the plan will now fall under the umbrella of the Parish Council as part of the Parish's Neighbourhood Plan Plus! initiative.
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.
