Planning and Development Management


IMPORTANT:  SCDC is starting a full review of its Local Plan

that was adopted in 2013This will have a major impact on what happens in Easton in future, including building development.  The core development area is critical to the decision on numbers mandated to villages and towns.  The Consultation Notice in 'Documents' is essential reading for anybody living in Easton.  There is also a poster about Public Drop In Sessions.  There is more information on the Review's website.

Day to day consultation

Easton Parish Council is consulted by Suffolk Coastal District Council (SCDC) about all development in the Parish. The Parish Council discusses all planning applications at Council meetings and then gives its comments to the District Council. Applicants and anyone interested are encouraged to attend Parish Council meetings where an opportunity is always given to applicants and members of the public present to comment on planning applications.

SCDC is the planning authority and all planning applications affecting Easton are decided by SCDC.

SCDC posts all planning applications on its website, where interested parties can view documents and plans.
