New Local Plan

The Waveney District Council has currently carried out public consultations on a new Local Plan. The deadline for comments was September 2017. The Beccles Society has made representation to the Waveney District Council expressing our views on the council proposals.

The new Local Plan will have far reaching effects upon the whole of Waveney for many years to come and our comments were shown in our Autumn Newsletter.
In January this year (2018) we met the consultants who are preparing the next stage of the Local Plan as it relates to the "Garden Village" proposals adjacent to the Southern Relief Road where approximately 1200 to 1300 houses are being considered.

We are currently actively involved in helping to produce "The Beccles Neighbourhood Plan" which will work in conjunction with the Local Plan.
