Stowmarket Area Action Plan

The Stowmarket Area Action Plan (SAAP) is a formal planning policy document and sets out relevant planning policies to guide future development in Stowmarket and its immediate surrounding villages. It includes policies for retail in the town centre, requirements for design, and policies for the town’s river valleys and the historic environment. It also allocates specific sites to ensure that there is sufficient land for future growth in employment, housing, retail, and recreation. These allocations are for employment and residential uses which could accommodate approximately 1,925 new dwellings.

NOTE: We are currently consulting on two such sites, at Chilton Leys and Mill Lane. Further details can be found by following the links opposite.  

The Stowmarket area Action Plan Local Plan was adopted by Mid Suffolk District Council on 21st February 2013. To find out more please follow the links below:
