Local plans

The adopted and emerging Local Plans covering the former St Edmundsbury and Forest Heath areas (and all related policy documents, including guidance and SPD’s) will continue to apply to those parts of the West Suffolk Council area until a new Local Plan for West Suffolk is adopted.

This is currently scheduled for mid-2023. 

West Suffolk Local Plan Review

West Suffolk have commenced a review of the local plan which will set out the long term planning and land use policies for the area. The timeline for the preparation of these documents is available on the Local Development Scheme.

Future evidence base documents relating to the plan will be added to this page as they become available.

For further information on the review please contact the planning policy team at planning.policy@westsuffolk.gov.uk or telephone 01284 757368.
