The Stutton Neighbourhood Plan has reached the formal consultation phase.
What happens now ...

Babergh Council has checked our Plan against a Legal Compliance Checklist (view hereand now you, and a number of statutory bodies, have six weeks to make any further comments. 

You can see details of Babergh's consultation process, (which runs from 12 September to 28 October 2022) on their website here.


Following that - and any necessary changes being made - an Independent Examiner will be appointed. They will decide if the Plan can proceed to the referendum stage. We may be asked to make further amendments first. 

Then there will be a referendum in the village. If it receives a majority "yes" vote, Babergh should immediately give it full weight when determining planning applications and Stutton Parish Council will use it as the guide when responding to planning applications.

Our next Meet Up Monday is on Monday 3rd October., 10.30 - 12 in the Community Hall.  Let us know if you need a lift.  We look forward to seeing you for coffee/tea, cake and chat!

Requests for a lift, particularly to hospital and doctor appointments, have started to increase and we continue to do our best to respond to these.  If you need a prescription picking up from the surgery, or some shopping delivered, just give us a ring. Or if you would just appreciate a friendly voice at the end of a phone we’re here to chat.
