A public inquiry into St Edmundsbury Council’s Vision 2031 documents detailing how the borough should develop over the next two decades begins today (Tuesday, February 4).
Roger Clews will be examining the documents, looking at the Rural Area South plans today.
The meeting starts at 9.30am at Days Inn Haverhill in Phoenix Road.
The main issue is whether or not the plan sets out sound proposals and development allocation for the southern part of the rural area.
His main questions are:
1) (a) Is the rural employment area designation at Wratting (Karro Foods, formally Vion/England and Lyle) justified and deliverable?
(b) Should part of the designated area be reallocated for housing or an alternative use?
2) (a) Are the proposals and development allocations for Cavendish and Clare justified and deliverable?
(b) Should the plan allocate land for mixed use development into the rear of The Swan in Nethergate Street, Clare (the Back Field)?
3) Are the plan’s proposals and development allocations for Kedington justified and deliverable?
4) Are the plan’s proposals and development allocations for Great and Little Wratting justified and deliverable?
5) Are the plan’s proposals and development allocations for Wickhambrook justified and deliverable?
