Suffolk Coastal Draft Local Plan
The Suffolk Coastal Local Plan, which covers the period to 2036, contains planning policies and site allocations which will be used to determine planning applications in the area. It will set out the level of growth which needs to be planned for, identify where that growth should be located and how it should be delivered.
In 2017, we published the Issues and Options Local Plan document for public consultation. Having considered all the comments received and assessed all of the sites received; a First Draft Local Plan has been prepared for public consultation and you are invited to let us know your thoughts on the policies and site allocations within the document.
Consultation on the First Draft Local Plan runs from
Friday 20th July to Friday 14th September 2018 (17.00)
Please note that there will be no extensions to this consultation period, any comments must be received by 17.00 on Friday 14thSeptember 2018.

Sudbourne is a village near to Orford and Aldeburgh in the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It stretches from Sudbourne Beach on Orfordness across the Alde and Ore Estuary and fresh water marshes to farmland, Captain's Wood and Tunstall Forest.
The centre of the village, including the Village Hall, lies on the road from Snape to Orford, while the parish church is set in the fields to the east of this road and there are cottages and farms scattered along the lanes. In the fields can be seen pigs, horses and donkeys and even Highland cattle as well as crops. Down on the marshes are sheep and cattle.
The population of Sudbourne is around 300.
Opposite to the church lies the drive to Sudbourne Park, where the remaining buildings of a large
estate have been turned into an attractive set of homes.
The Manor of Sudbourne dates from Saxon times.
Sudbourne and Iken were evacuated during World War II. See the history page.
