The Waveney Final Draft Local Plan has been published. Click here to see the Final Draft for Rumburgh.
There is now an 8 week period, ending at 5pm on Thursday 24th May, for the public and stakeholders to submit representations indicating whether they object to the Plan or not. Click here to view a leaflet giving details of how to submit a representation online and with details of drop-in sessions where there will be the opportunity to talk to planning officers about the Local Plan and who will provide advice on how to make a representation.
Representations made during this period will be submitted, with the Local Plan, to the Government, who will appoint an independent Planning Inspector to conduct an Examination in Public into the soundness of the Local Plan.
Representations at this stage should only be made on the legal and procedural compliance of the Local Plan, the soundness of the Local Plan and whether the Local Plan is in conformity with the Duty to Co-operate.

Community Speed Watch Proposal
Rumburgh Parish Council are considering establishing a village Community Speed Watch scheme that will co-ordinate equipment and existing efforts with other local schemes already in operation.
It would be useful to establish:
1. How much of an issue speeding traffic in Rumburgh is considered to be.
2. Specific sections of road in the village where traffic speed is considered to be a nuisance or dangerous.
3. Whether anyone has an interest in being actively involved in the scheme.
Philip Cockburn has offered to be the co-ordinator, gather information and interest and provide updates on progress and statistics. He can be contacted either by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone 01986 785444.
