Want to get in touch with the Working Group?email:

The Stutton Neighbourhood Plan has now completed 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.
What happens now ...

An Independent Examiner, Ann Skippers, has been appointed.  She will decide if the Plan can proceed to the referendum stage. We may be asked to make further amendments first.  Any information about this will be posted on this website.

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.
