Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan


Saxmundham’s population has grown rapidly in recent years, with major new housing developments both to east and west of the town centre.  The scale of future housing growth, and its best locations, are key issues for Saxmundham.  In addition, we need to decide what kinds of housing we need, how to ensure it is affordable and also well designed – and what infrastructure must be put in place.
