West Suffolk Local Plan – Live Consultation

West Suffolk Council is working on a new Local Plan which will direct development in the district until 2040. They are currently consulting on the Preferred Options (Regulation 18) version of the plan which provides the opportunity for landowners and developers to comment on submitted sites and to put forward new sites for consideration to take this future growth.


This preferred options consultation draft of the local plan is the second opportunity for communities and stakeholders to get involved with preparing the new plan. A Submission draft local plan is expected to be published in May 2023. The final draft will then be examined by an independent inspector appointed by the Secretary of State.


The deadline for submitting sites is the 26th July 2022 and we would be delighted to hear from you if you have land to put forward for consideration or if you wish to make comments on the Council’s preferred choices for development.
