Call for Sites (5 Jan - 2 Feb 2024)

Following adoption of the Babergh and Mid Suffolk Joint Local Plan Part 1 2018-2037 Development Plan Document (DPD) in November 2023, the Councils are progressing with the production of the Joint Local Plan Part 2 DPD.  At this initial point of the plan-making process the Councils are inviting site submissions to be put forward for residential land use for consideration for future development.

This is known as the ‘Call for Sites’ process. It is important to note, the Call for Sites exercise will not in itself determine whether a site should be allocated for development.  All sites will need to be further assessed and the overall strategy for the Local Plan will be informed by a number of evidence base documents and feedback from consultations.  The submission of a site through the Call for Sites process does not give them any planning status, nor does it determine any future planning status.

A separate submission must be made for each site. Submissions must be received by 1pm Friday 2 February 2024.

The Councils may undertake further ‘Call for Sites’ exercises for other land uses as the evidence base develops.
