Please note: we are currently dealing with a large volume of responses, which are being inputted onto the consultation system. During this time we are unable to confirm if individual comments have been received. Confirmation emails/letters will be sent out once all comments have been inputted, which is estimated to take 4 weeks. Furthermore, the Councils will not be replying to each individual comment, instead a Consultation Statement will be produced containing a summary of the main issues raised and how these have been considered. 

Local Plan Timetable (the Local Development Scheme)

A new Local Development Scheme (LDS) was agreed by Babergh and Mid Suffolk Councils in July 2018, which sets out the revised timetable for the production of the Joint Local Plan. The latest version can be found on the link below:
