Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan

Environment & energy

Saxmundham is a gateway to an area of great environmental importance as well as natural beauty.  As the town expands, our fine surrounding landscape comes under increasing pressure.  We need to ensure that future development is not at the expense of our local environment.  Local wildlife and ecology, green open spaces, allotments and community gardens, recycling, green energy and energy-efficient buildings – all these are key to an attractive, sustainable Saxmundham.
