Sir. —Many of Suffolk’s residents will be wondering if Suffolk Coastal District Council (SCDC) ever listens to the voice of the people. Your correspondent Anne Maddison’s informative letter about the ecology (EADT, October 1) exemplifies another aspect of the widely felt sense of dismay over the council-inspired proposal for major development on the BT . . . → Read More: Letter to EADT – Adastral housing decisions ..closely watched

Dear Secretary of State,
Suffolk Coastal District Council have concocted a Local Development Framework which dovetails exactly with the Planning application 09/0555 put forward by BT. Despite your statements on planning policy, specifically the RSS, they propose to use the LDF as interim policy to approve this plan for 2000+ houses . . . → Read More: Letter to Secretary of State from Waldringfield resident

Mr P Ridley
Head of Planning
Suffolk Coastal District Council
Dear Mr Ridley
I am writing on behalf of Waldringfield Parish Council to request clarification on the use of ‘interim planning policies’ to determine planning applications. We have 3 simple questions, and would very much appreciate it if you would provide answers to them:
On 18th March 2010 the full council passed a resolution which said:
(ii) That the Policies be adopted as interim planning policy for the determining of planning applications and enforcement;
This makes no attempt to distinguish between routine planning applications and large scale, controversial ones. The rejection of Cllr John Kelso’s proposed amendment (which sought to make this distinction) at the 18th March meeting emphasised this. However, in a press release dated 10th June 2010, Cllr Andy Smith said: Continue reading

Mr R Beswarick-Asser
Scrutiny Business Manager
Suffolk Coastal District Council
Dear Mr Beswarick-Asser,
I am writing on behalf of Waldringfield Parish Council concerning your invitation to comment on the workings of the Planning Department of Suffolk Coastal District Council. This invitation said:
“You are therefore invited to express your own thoughts to the working party. How you do this is up to you. The working party has no particular axe to grind, and nor has the main committee for that matter. The main thing at this stage is to discover any areas that may give concern (if any) so as to provide solid guidance for the main scrutiny.”
Our primary concern was (and still is) the way in which the overall strategy and planning policies have been developed. We responded to your invitation with 9 pages of comment, 8 of which were devoted to the way in which the Local Development Framework (LDF) was produced, in particular to the way in which key decision were made. No indication was given to us that this topic was not to be included in your remit, in fact the quote above implied that we were free to cover any topic we wished. Continue reading
