Neighbourhood Plan
Update: January 2023
Our Neighbourhood Plan has now passed the Independent Examination stage.  You can see a copy of the Independent Examiner's report here. The Independent Examiner was very positive about the Plan.  She recommended some modifications which we are in the process of incorporating into the Plan, after which it will be published on this website. 
Babergh have now issued a Regulation 18 Decision Statement on the Plan.  You can see it here.
We have agreed to hold the Referendum after the May local elections and further information will be posted on this website, and throughout the village, when we have a date.   
At the formal consultation (Regulation 16) phase the only substantial response received was from Anglian Water and you can see that and our response to their suggestions on Babergh's website here. That website also has all the most up date information and documents relating to our Plan.

Live theatre comes to Stutton Saturday 22 April 

Eastern Angles Presents Medieval Miracles 

Heaven is empty and Hell is full – what is God to do? Lower the bar? The answer comes in The Trials of Mary & Joseph, a series of mystery plays telling the Nativity story – but not as you know it. The search for an Immaculate Conception hits a doubting husband, local opposition and scandal, and some sceptical midwives, until some starry-eyed shepherds gets this well-known story back on track. 

Plus Mankind, England’s most popular comedy of the 90’s (that’s the 1490’s) retold as a boisterous story of a climate conscious young man caught between the temptations of three mischievous devils and the need to be a good person.

 “East Anglia was the Broadway or West End of the 15th Century English theatre” once said a stage historian. With live music, comic twists and a sense of the ridiculous we're bringing two of its biggest hits right up to date this spring.
