From Monday 6 November 2017 the team will be based at Endeavour House, 8 Russell Road, Ipswich IP1 2BX. The Needham Market and Hadleigh Planning offices will be closed from this date onwards.

When sending correspondence to Endeavour House please ensure it is addressed to either the Babergh District Council Planning Department or Mid Suffolk District Council Planning Department. Thank you.


We have two new customer access points:

If you have any queries please call the Planning Support Team on 0300 123 4000 (option 5).



Please note that we now charge for pre-application advice for most Major, Minor and Other developments. This enables us to ensure we can provide effective advice backed by the right resources. In very straight forward cases we continue to advise on permitted development rights and other sources of planning advice. For more advice on the pre-application charges which might apply to your enquiry please select the Pre-application advice button below.
