  • Justified
  • Effective
Details of Representation

I have seen no evidence that there is need for the creation of a new business park in Suffolk Coastal, particularly in the light of the proposed continued expansion of the Ransomes site SCLP12.21 and the existence of the Martlesham Technology park only very close by it is hard to understand why SCLP12.20 is anything other than an unnecessary intrusion into the AONB and the 'green corridor' that separates Ipswich from Felixstowe

Please set out what change(s) you consider necessary to make the Local Plan legally compliant or sound

SCLP12.21 is unnecessary.  It should be dropped
