Draft Recreational Disturbance Avoidance and Mitigation Strategy Supplementary Planning Document

The Suffolk Coast Recreation Disturbance Avoidance and Mitigation Strategy (RAMS) is a partnership between East Suffolk Council, Ipswich Borough Council and Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils. Its aim is to reduce the impact of increased levels of recreational use on Habitat Sites (also often called European Sites), due to new residential development in the Suffolk Coast area, and to provide a simple, coordinated way for developers to deliver mitigation for their developments.

The draft Supplementary Planning Document summarises the requirements of Suffolk Coast RAMS, including the per-dwelling tariff, and provides a framework for implementing those provisions. 

In light of requests for an extension to the consultation period, it has been agreed that responses will be accepted up until 5pm Monday 7th December
