The Stradbroke Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is being prepared by Stradbroke Parish Council and, when completed, will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
Mid Suffolk District Council appointed Janet Cheesley BA (Hons) DipTP MRTPI to carry out an independent examination of the Stradbroke NDP. Having considered all the evidence before her she has now issued her final report (see below). The report recommends that …”subject to modification, the Plan will provide a strong practical framework against which decisions on development can be made” and that … “as modified, [the plan] should proceed to a [local] referendum.”
Mid Suffolk's Cabinet Committee will be asked to endorse the recommendations contained in the report when the meet in December, i.e., the Parish Council will be asked to modify their plan accordingly. Further details will be published here in due course.

Stradbroke Parish Council (the qualifying body) had formally submitted the following documents:
An assessment as to whether the NDP fulfils the basic conditions will be undertaken by an Independent Examiner (see above). A check was, however, undertaken to confirm that the relevant requirements have been met at this stage. View the Reg 15 Checklist.
Respondents were also reminded that their comments would be forwarded to the independent examiner and, that with the exception of personal contact details, they would be published on this website. They were also advised that, in accordance with guidance issued by NPIERS in early 2018, the NDP Group would be give an opportunity to consider the representations made and submit their own response to them if they felt it appropriate to do so.

The outcome was that the need for an SEA Scoping Report was 'screened-in' and the need for an HRA Scoping Report was 'screened-out'. A copy of the relevant reports and Notices of Determination are published below:
