It is clear that adequate consultation and consideration has not been given to the local residents of Copdock and Washbrook and communication has been non-existent with many residents being completely unaware of the proposals until near the end of the consultation process when the Parish Council made all residents aware, in their own time and at their own expense. The proposals being completely disproportionate relative to the nature and character of the village and surrounding countryside, environmental impact on nature and the already struggling road infrastructure.

This is a question. Where is the question mark?

How can the general public take this entire document seriously when it is strewn with basic grammatical errors?

Yes, we agree, it is obvious for an effective Local Plan. Especially given its stated emphasis on establishing 'an ambitious yet sustainable growth agenda which will prioritise the infrastructure investment required to deliver the growth ambitions and will identify the locations for delivering the necessary housing, employment and recreational growth and development'. (See page 12 of the draft NJLP Consultation document).

DISAGREE see attached paper (named Duty to Co-operate Comments). The Duty to Co-oparate legislative framework sits within Regulation 18 , of the Town and Country Planning Regulations, however it does not adhere to the NPPF as a whole and the Plan Making section starting at Paragraph 150 thereto in particular.

We agree with the identified key issues on Compliance. It is clearly essential to have compatible objectives with other authorities controlling development and provision of infrastructure which affect the District Councils. Babergh and Mid Suffolk are not of sufficient stature to be able to control the objectives and actions of larger local stakeholders.

Duty to co-operate cuts both ways. More attention should be paid to Parish concils that represent more intimately their community. Often the Planning office approves an application for building that has been strongly opposed by the Parish Council on behalf of its community.

The JLP D to C is seen solely in the context of the Localism Act 2011, section 110 and part 2 of the Town & Country regs. 2012. The framework of the JLP appears to cherry pick the NPPF and ignores not only the letter of the document but also the spirit of it of a bottom up process based on local involvement at the community level.
It is not clear where authority is derived to ignore the NPPF as a whole document. The present process of consultation is not a substitute for proper engagement.

It is not clear where authority is derived to ignore the NPPF as a whole document. Many important sections within the JLP commence with a reference to paragraph 156 of the NPPF and this leapfrogs over the need to; 'reflect the vision and aspirations of local communities' (para 150), 'be consistent with the principles and policies set out in this Framework' (para 151), 'Early and meaningful engagement and collaborations with neighbourhoods' (para 155). By starting at 156 the need to engage and involve local communities is not fully addressed. The present process of consultation is not a substitute for proper engagement.

I accept there is a government requirement to cooperate with other authorities and LPA's particularly on infrastructure
However this JLP fails to acknowledge the NPPF requirement to cooperate at a local level with Parish Councils and communities. Much more, and much better could be achieved without objection if they did but consultation only takes place at the level of statutory consultees at the last stages of development once plans have already been advised on.

The identified key issues appear to be comprehensive, but I am surprised not to see reference to Parish Councils as Duty to Co-operate partners for several of the issues, but particularly with respect to objectively assessed need for housing and employment. Add Parish Councils to have a voice, to ensure that we truly become the local guardians of the area and can represent the local community as the first line of local govt.

Partially support - there is a lack of reference regarding the duty of BMSDC to cooperate at all levels under NPPF policies. Its obvious that BDC have been communicating with Ipswich Borough Council regarding 'cross-border' issues but these have not been communicated at Parish Council and should have been prior to the JLP Consultation. Especially as Ipswich have insufficient land and will be looking to Babergh to provide land - this will impact individual Parishes hence should be discussed before agreeing anything with Ipswich BC.

There is a failure of meaningful cooperation. There is a lack of proposal of infrastucture improvements to support existing areas, let alone new ones. We have been told that infrastructure is someone else's issue and that infrastructure will only be considered after the new developments have been built.

Environment protection section needs to include another statutory consultee namely Historic Gardens Trust which is statutory consultee for historic parks and gardens as well as Heritage England.
We consider also that it is very important for BDC to cooperate closely with parish councils where the parish council has expressed a wish to be involved on development proposals in its parish, especially with regard to planning obligations and Section 106 provisions.
