Attended Parish Council meetings in Claydon/Whitton, Hemingstone and Henley in one evening . It is extremely difficult to be in three places at once but very important as the meetings provide me with the opportunity to hear about the current issues in the villages. It gave me the opportunity to update Parish Councillor’s on the Local Development Framework (LDF) which will replace the Local Plan (www.midsuffolk.gov.uk). An important part of the LDF is the Core Strategy. Mid Suffolk’s Core Strategy is a spatial vision for the district through to 2025. It sets out policies and objectives on issues such as housing and employment . The Council has now submitted its Core Strategy, approved by Full Council on 22 October, to the Secretary of State and it will be ‘Examined’ by an independent inspector to to see if it is “sound”. A six-week period of public consultation runs from 31st October to Friday 14th December 2007. All of the comments received during the consultation stage will be forwarded to the Inspector for his consideration. He/she will consider the representations made and may invite parties to put their views forward at hearing sessions. Parish Councillors were also informed about the Community Workshop to be held on Monday 3 December at Claydon Village Hall (3.00-7.00pm) to discuss the Site Specific Allocations (Land bids) in the area for housing and employment purposes. Its your chance to have your say so please turn up.
