Kesgrave Neighbourhood Plan

Shaping Kesgrave
Page updated on 11th October 2017 - next scheduled review: February 11th, 2018


A neighbourhood plan is a legal document which must be taken into account by developers and by the planning committee and planning officers at Suffolk Coastal Council when considering all future planning applications.

Why do we need a neighbourhood plan?

If we, as a Town, want to have any say in or control over what development happens in Kesgrave in the future then we will need a neighbourhood plan. Without it, the size and nature of development will be decided by developers and planners using policies and guidelines over which we have no control.

This is your chance to have your say

A questionnaire is going to every household in the Town. It is entirely anonymous. The reference number you see is simply there to avoid duplicate entries and cannot be linked to an individual or to the answers that he or she gives.

The results of the questionnaire will form the Neighbourhood Plan, which will say how you, the residents of Kesgrave, want the Town to evolve in the future.

In order to make the plan a binding document, the Town will have the chance to approve it in a vote organised by Suffolk Coastal Council – just like an election.

If this happens, all future planning applications will be made in light of the Plan’s conditions for the development. So it’s important that you complete the questionnaire!
