Sustainable Construction Supplementary Planning Document - Initial Consultation

This consultation has now closed. View the responses. 


East Suffolk Council is in the early stages of preparing a new Sustainable Construction Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and is carrying out a consultation from Monday 15th March to 5pm on Monday 26th April 2021.

The Sustainable Construction SPD will provide guidance on a range of topics including energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, sustainable transport and use of materials, to support the implementation of the Local Plan policies.

A consultation document has been prepared to provide an overview of the proposed scope and content of the SPD and is supported by a short questionnaire.

The Sustainable Construction SPD will be a material consideration in the determination of planning applications and, once adopted, will replace the Renewable Energy and Sustainable Construction SPD (September 2013, which relates to the former Waveney Local Planning Authority area only). 

This online consultation page was updated on the 25th March 2021. The consultation page has been updated to request the name of respondents and to ensure that responses are made to the questionnaire only. Any responses submitted before this date are still accepted.
