Neighbourhood Plan 

Current Consultation

On 22 September 2018, at an open meeting at the Village Hall, residents of Stutton voted to create a Neighbourhood Plan. A Working Party was set up to take this forward and now the Plan is ready for you to see - and comment on.

What happens now?

  • There is a six-week consultation period

  • See the Plan and all the accompanying documents here

  • Tell us what you think here 

  • We adjust the Plan

  • It is then formally scrutinised by an Independent Examiner (with feedback from several interested bodies), who may ask us to make amendments

  • We make the necessary amendments

  • There is a referendum in the village next summer

  • If it receives a majority "yes" vote, Stutton Parish Council will use it as the guide when responding to planning applications - and Babergh should immediately give it full weight when determing planning applications. 

The consultation runs from 8 November to 20 December 2021

Paper copies of the Plan are available to read or borrow in the Community Shop, the Community Hall,  the King's Head and Looking Good.
