Have your say:  Suffolk’s Energy Gateway:

A message from District Councillor TJ Haworth-Culf:

To inform you about a consultation that will open on Tuesday 12 September about Suffolk’s Energy Gateway, specifically the proposed new road to by-pass the villages of Farnham, Stratford St Andrew, Little Glemham and Marlesford on the A12. The scheme is designed to provide a modern high quality road to enable, support and deliver economic growth in East Suffolk and enhance the quality of life for local people. Should the scheme be delivered, the existing road will remain open for local traffic, providing access to the four villages and local businesses.

It is very important that local residents, businesses and community groups get involved in this consultation to ensure that all local views and opinions are represented in the business case that Suffolk County Council must submit to Government before the end of 2017.        

Two public exhibitions have been organised to give local communities an opportunity to see the proposals in detail and find out more about the benefits of the scheme. Members of the project team will be on hand to answer questions.

The exhibitions will be held at the Riverside Centre in Stratford St Andrew (6 Great Glemham Rd, Stratford St Andrew, Saxmundham IP17 1LL) on the following days:

Wednesday 20 September 2017 – 10am to 6pm

Saturday 23 September 2017 – 10am to 6pm

In addition, from 12 September, all information will be available online at: www.suffolk.gov.uk/consultations.

The consultation will close on 25 October 2017.

Please share with other persons / parties in the area that you think may be interested.


Have Your Say: Dog Controls in the Suffolk Coastal District:

The combined Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Council is considering amending the various dog controls currently in force across the Suffolk Coastal District.

Currently, there are several by-laws and on order made under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 which are in force and impose requirements on dog owners, including prohibiting dogs from certain areas, requiring owners to clean up after their dogs on most open land and also requiring dogs to be kept on a lead in certain defined areas.

The Council is proposing to introduce Public Space Protection Orders to replace these controls  as set out in the detailed consultation documents available for download on the Council’s website at http://www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/environment/environmental-protection/animals/dog-control/public-space-protection-orders

 If you wish to comment on these proposed new Public Space Protection Orders, do so by emailing environment@eastsuffolk.gov.uk or in writing to PSPO Consultation, C/O Environmental Protection, SCDC, East Suffolk House, Station Road, Melton, Suffolk IP12 1RT.
Comments should be submitted by midnight Friday 22 September 2017.
