The Suffolk Coastal Final Draft Local Plan has been published for submission of representations.  The Plan covers the period to 2036, sets out the level of growth to be planned for, and identifies where that growth should be located and how it should be delivered.  It also contains planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications in the area.

The representations period runs from Monday 14th January to Monday 25th February 2019.
