People in Worlingham can have their say on their new neighbourhood plan.

Some of the challenges covered by the plan include keeping the sense of community within the parish – and the distinctive identity of Worlingham as it continues to grow.

Local residents are invited to comment on the Worlingham Neighbourhood Plan, ahead of it being submitted for independent examination.

Worlingham Parish Council has submitted their Neighbourhood Plan to East Suffolk Council and the Broads Authority to be publicised and to invite comments from residents. These comments will be sent to the examiner for consideration alongside the plan. 

Subject to the plan successfully completing all the relevant regulatory stages, the policies and proposals contained in the plan will be used by East Suffolk Council and the Broads Authority in the determination of planning applications within the Worlingham Neighbourhood Area.

Councillor David Ritchie, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Planning and Coastal Management said: “Neighbourhood planning enables local communities to get directly involved with shaping the areas in which they live and work. I would encourage those living in Worlingham to view the plan and submit their comments.”

Copies of the Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents are available to view at www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplanning

Physical copies are available to view at Beccles Library and Riverside, 4 Canning Road, Lowestoft, Suffolk NR33 0EQ by appointment only. Please email planningpolicy@eastsuffolk.gov.uk or call 01502 523029 / 01394 444557 to book an appointment at Riverside.

Representations on the plan can be made at www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplanning

Alternatively, comments can be emailed to planningpolicy@eastsuffolk.gov.uk or sent by post to East Suffolk Council, Planning Policy and Delivery Team (Neighbourhood Plans), Riverside, 4 Canning Road, Lowestoft, Suffolk NR33 0EQ. 

All representations should be headed ‘Worlingham Neighbourhood Plan’ as the subject matter. Where representations relate to a particular paragraph or policy, please ensure that this is also clearly stated. Any representations made may include a request to be notified of East Suffolk Council’s decision whether to accept the examiner’s recommendation and future progress with the plan.

Representations must be received no later than 5pm on Monday 21st February 2022. All representations will be made available to view online as soon as possible after the close of the consultation.
