Strap line for East Bergholt Neighbourhood Plan


Thank you for all those that responded to the drop-in and online consultation. We will be using the results and other data to start drafting a set of policies for the new Neighbourhood Plan. Watch this space.

The PC responded to the views of the village expressed in the Neighbourhood Plan expressing safety concerns about the traffic in the village. We employed a consultancy to examine the evidence and make proposals. Their suggestions have now been published in a report which you will here: Traffic/PJA Road Traffic Strategy Study (1Q2023)/PJA East Bergholt Traffic Management Strategy Rev B December 2022 -compressed.pdf?q=638211395461920660

These are just the results of the consultants proposals and the PC now wants to know your views about them. Which areas do you think are the key priorities? What other areas do you think should have been included? Which order of priority would you put these proposals in?

You will find the results of a survey of village views here:

We also informed you Babergh District Council was working with Mid-Suffolk District Council to produce a new Joint Local Plan. In planning terms, the most up-to-date Plan is given greater weight, making it important Babergh’s Plan reflects your views as expressed in our Neighbourhood Plan.
It is now time to make your views known.
The Joint Local Plan Draft is now for consultation. See:
Comments need to be submitted before the end of August.
The Neighbourhood Plan Committee will be reviewing this document and feeding back their comments. Help would be most welcome. Use the contact link on the left hand side of the page.
