Babergh Local Plan

The Babergh Local Plan (2006) has now had the majority of the policies superseded by the Babergh and Mid Suffolk Joint Local Plan Part 1 (November 2023). 

To see the Saved Policies, please click here.

The Babergh Local Plan Alteration No.2 was adopted by the Council on 1st June 2006. It sets out the detailed policies and proposals for the control of development across the district. Due to changes in planning regulation, and the adoption of subsequent planning documents (such as the Babergh Core Strategy) some policies have been superseded. A list of saved policies can be found within the 'Saved Policies page'.

Work has begun on a new Joint Local Plan document for Babergh and Mid Suffolk districts, which will replace the 2006 Local Plan. 

The adopted Local Plan is published below. For ease of access, the document has been broken down into sections - Text, Proposals Maps and Village Boundary Maps. These sections have been further sub-divided as necessary. All files are in PDF format and will open in a new window. (File sizes are shown in brackets).
