Neighbourhood Plan Pre-submission Consultation

This consultation, on behalf of Bredfield Parish Council, complies with Regulation 14 of The Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012 and will run for a period of seven weeks from Friday 20th July through to Friday 7th September 2018.

It offers a last opportunity to influence Bredfield’s Neighbourhood Plan before it is submitted to Suffolk Coastal District Council.

All comments received by Friday 7th September 2018 will be considered by the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group (NPWG) and may be utilised to amend this draft Neighbourhood Plan. A Consultation Statement, including a summary of all comments received and how these were considered, will be made available along with the amended Neighbourhood Plan at a future date.
