The Framlingham Town Council Planning & Environment Committee usually meet on the third Monday of each month. The agenda for the next  meeting is always available a week or so ahead of the meeting from our documents pages. All documents from council business are publicly available from our documents pages HERE.

The Town Council is a statutory consultee on planning consent applications and is also involved in District and County Structure Plans. The Town Council considers planning applications twice a month, at the full council meeting and at the planning committee meeting. We have 21 days to respond to applications and our comments are considered by Suffolk Coastal District Council (SCDC) but the final decision rests with their planning department. Letters supporting or objecting to an application should be sent directly to Suffolk Coastal District Council and a copy sent to the Town Council.

The public are welcome to attend the town council planning meetings and may speak at the discretion of the chairman. Plans are available on Thursday mornings in the Town Council Office, or by arrangement with the Town Clerk, or at the SCDC Offices in Woodbridge or online at the SCDC website. Nine tenths of applications are SCDC Officer delegated decisions; ie the Chief Planning Officer, who has delegated authority, decides refusal or approval. If the SCDC has received an objection to an application then the monthly Development Control Sub-Committee meeting determines refusal or approval.

The sub-committee meets at the SCDC offices in Woodbridge and the meeting is open to the public who have a right to speak at an allocated time. Ensure you arrive early and identify yourself to the appropriate officer advising that you wish to speak. The Planning System is a changing document and one which affects us all. By working with Suffolk Coastal District Council we hope that our comments help maintain the beauty of our unique town while improving and expanding in a sensitive manner to the benefit of all.

All meetings are currently being held via ZOOM video conferencing
