Latest Update (1st November 2017) - Please click here to see the letter HPC sent in to SCDC, in response to the Local Plan Review
You may have read in the East Anglian Daily Times on Monday that Suffolk Coastal District Council (SCDC) have started another review of their Local Plan. The first stage of this review is to consult on what is known as an 'Issue and Options Document'.
The ‘Issues and Options’ document - link to the full document here - contains details of ALL sites offered by land owners, agents and developers for potential development in the district. It is important to note that many of these potential sites will be totally unsuitable for development and will be rejected by SCDC Planning due to their unsuitability but all are shown in the document "...in the interest of transparency and openness and so that you are aware of all the possible options and have the opportunity to consider and comment on them".
There are 18 potential sites identified in Hollesley.
Please remember that these sites have not been vetted by SCDC and may be totally unsuitable for many reasons. Six of the sites have been suggested before and were labelled as ‘unsuitable’ by SCDC, three of the sites were suggested before and SCDC felt they were ‘suitable’ and there are nine new sites.
However, just because a site has been rejected before does not automatically mean it will be rejected again. Therefore it is very important that we express our views on these sites at this early stage. After this initial consultation period (ending on 30th October) SCDC will be reviewing each site and will take in to consideration views received.
If you would like to express a view on one or all of the sites you can do so in a number of ways:
In addition, SCDC are holding a 'Drop-In’ Session at their new offices opposite Melton Station on Tuesday 26th September, 4.00pm ~ 7.30pm. Please go along and voice your opinions.
