Decision Made

1. That the content of the Suffolk Coastal Local Plan, as contained at Appendix C of report ES/0474, be noted and endorsed.

 

2. That the Suffolk Coastal Local Plan be recommended to Full Council for adoption.

 

3. That the Head of Planning and Coastal Management, in consultation with the Cabinet Member with responsibility for Planning and Coastal Management, be authorised to make any presentational or typographical amendments to the Local Plan prior to adoption.

 

4. That the Temporary Suspension of Parts of the Statement of Community Involvement for Planning Policy Purposes – Adoption of the Suffolk Coastal Local Plan, as contained in Appendix D of report ES/0474, be recommended to Full Council for approval.

Reason for Decision
To ensure that the Council has an up to date Local Plan which will make sure that future growth is plan-led and delivered in a sustainable way. 
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected
Another option would have been to not recommend adoption of the Suffolk Coastal Local Plan. Not adopting the Local Plan would increase the risk of unplanned development taking place, by not identifying further locations and sites for development. Not adopting the Local Plan would also represent a missed opportunity to put policies in place to address issues and needs identified through the Local Plan evidence base and which are consistent with the Council’s wider ambitions as set out in the Strategic Plan. The current Covid-19 situation also highlights the importance of having a long term positive and planned approach to economic growth in place, as soon as possible, through the adoption of the new Local Plan. 
Any Declarations of Interest Declared
None.
Any Dispensation Granted
None.
