Saxmundham Neighbourhood Plan

Local economy & employment

Looking to the future, we need to think hard about the kind of local economy we want.  Saxmundham is today largely a service town, serving a wider community, with supermarkets, stores and services.  Our only local industrial estate today is in the parish of Kelsale.  With rapid changes in work and technology, what types of jobs and businesses should we aim to foster – and where might they best be located?
