These actions will directly contribute to the overall sense of community and wellbeing of West Suffolk.

The borough council was one of the few district local authorities within the country to produce a Rural Action Plan to help deliver projects in our rural areas. These projects aimed to contribute to the preservation and enhancement of the social, economic and environmental well-being of rural St Edmundsbury.
The review of the Action Plan (PDF 292Kb) is being submitted to the Rural Area Working Party on 26 March 2014. The appendix to this review shows how the work to support rural communities set out in the Action Plan is continuing as part of new policies and initiatives.
