Suffolk Coastal Local Plan: Consultation on Main Modifications
2pm Friday 1st May 2020 to 5pm Friday 10th July 2020

The Suffolk Coastal Local Plan is currently being examined by an Independent Planning Inspector. Following the close of public hearings in September, the Inspector has written to the Council advising what modifications are likely to be required in order for the plan to be found ‘sound’. 

Before the Inspector can finalise his conclusions on the soundness of the Plan, Main Modifications alongside an Addendum to the Sustainability Appraisal Report and an updated Habitats Regulations Assessment of the modifications have been published for consultation. Responses to the consultation will be considered by the Inspector before he prepares his final report on the Plan.

A tracked change version of the Final Draft Local Plan, which incorporates all proposed modifications, has also been published for reference purposes.

This consultation is not an opportunity to re-state previous representations, as these were already considered as part of the examination. This is also not an opportunity to raise new objections to the submitted Local Plan. This consultation is purely on the modifications and it is only these which are available for comment. 

The consultation documents themselves are available on the ESC website here:
