Paragraph 16 of the NPPF requires Plans to be prepared with the objective of contributing to sustainable development, and shaped by early, proportionate and effective engagement between plan makers and infrastructure providers.
Suffolk Constabulary identified the need for additional police facilities provision to mitigate the impact of planned housing & population growth on its baseline Safer Neighbourhood Team resources which are at capacity, & to provide for an appropriate level of community safety, cohesion & policing.
Recognition of the need for additional developer funded police facilities was therefore sought at the Regulation 18 stage of the Plan in September 2019.

Change suggested by respondent:

For the reasons outlined in response to Section 5 above, & in order to fully achieve sustainable development by providing for an appropriate level of community safety, cohesion & policing, the following modification to the Plan is required;
Policy: LA010 – Land South of Chalk Hill Lane and West of Hood Drive, Great Blakenham
Insert a new paragraph (below healthcare provision) as follows:
“XI. Contributions, to the satisfaction of the LPA, towards police facilities provision.”
Contributions towards CCTV at the level crossing to become paragraph XII.

At regulation 18 consultation stage, SCC highlighted that a number of site allocation policies need to contain the following wording, requiring a Flood Risk Assessment (FRA). The recommended amendment would make these policies effective in addressing flood risks and therefore sound.

Change suggested by respondent:

A flood risk assessment should be carried out to identify suitable mitigation and a deliverable strategy for the disposal of surface water. Where possible development should avoid proportions of the site with predicted or historic flooding.
