Reg 7 - Area Designation (January 2022)

Designation of the Bures NDP area is belatedly confirmed.

A joint application made by Bures Hamlet and Bures St Mary to designate their two parishes as a single NDP Area was received and consulted on by Braintree and Babergh District Councils between 1 September and 15 October 2021.

No objections were received during that period.

In accordance with their governance procedures, the two planning authorities have now agreed to designate the Bures NDP Area.

Responsibility for progressing this NDP now rests with the two parish councils and their local communities. Visit the Parish Councils' own webpage for more information.
