Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan

What is the Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework to shape our town’s development, regeneration and conservation. We can set out our shared ‘vision’ and planning policies for the future of Saxmundham, and influence where new homes, shops, offices, restaurants etc. should be built – and what facilities or infrastructure we need.


The Steering Group (town councillors and community volunteers) produced the draft Neighbourhood Plan in November 2021, on which we consulted local people and businesses from 1 November to 22 December.  Many thanks to all those who responded! 


The Steering Group went through all of the comments received in detail, and has produced a second draft, sent to East Suffolk Council, who are now consulting on the 2nd draft before arranging for an ‘independent examination’ of the draft Plan, to check it meets legal requirements and make any final proposed changes.
