We are in the final stages of the Local Plan review.
Background: East Suffolk Coastal submitted their Local Plan to the government Inspector to be examined for soundness. A public consultation subsequently took place and the joint PC group (K&F PC and neighbouring PCs) produced a detailed response. Subsequently the Inspector determined the ‘matters’ he wishes to address at the public examination hearings and the questions he is wanting addressed for each matter.
Where are we now: The joint PC group have contracted with planning professionals and they, with our input, have produced written submissions for each of the 'matters' concerning Innocence Farm (IF) and will be representing us at the hearings, beginning 20th August.
The matters relevant to IF are those addressing the process of producing the Local Plan, the economy policies and finally the IF policy itself.
