View the responses to the spring 2012 consultation
Bury St Edmunds Vision 2031 has been compiled by the council, working with many other partners, and will set out the council's vision for the future of Bury St Edmunds and be part of the statutory planning policy for the town. This first draft has been compiled after widespread consultation so that it reflects the views of local people. Consultation on the document took place between 1 March and 30 April 2012. The next steps are that a final draft of the document will be worked up for a final period of consultation in autumn 2012. The document will then be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for an independent examination into the proposals. If the document is found to be acceptable the council will then adopt it and it will become part of the statutory planning policy for the borough. If you have any queries on the process please contact LDF@stedsbc.gov.uk or call 01284 757368.
Strategic Site background information
In early 2011 the developers of the Strategic Areas of growth around Bury St Edmunds consulted with existing surrounding communities and other stakeholders.
The aim was to explore what opportunities and constraints existed and what issues and aspirations people had for the areas of growth. This was completed with a view to drawing up concept plan options for the sites for further consultation. The various concept plan options were included in the Vision 2031 documents listed above, and people had an opportunity to comment on these options by the 30 April 2012.
The background information to the development of these concept options, produced by the developers of the growth areas, can be seen by selecting the appropriate link below.
