Policies

DVS policies are not prepared for their own sake or in isolation, but in response to the proposed plans of public bodies. These, once complete, often represent binding commitments. To protect the Vale from threats in the future, we need to engage with these documents while they are being prepared.

We use this page of the website, therefore, to publish our comments on:

These are as submitted to the relevant bodies, so are in whatever format was dictated by that purpose. They contain statements of DVS policy on, in particular:

  • Climate change and spatial planning - AONB Plan comments, 2nd attachment, point 2
  • Traffic and Transport - AONB Plan comments, 1st attachment
  • Affordable housing - comments on the EEIP (above) point 3c; and AONB Plan comments, 2nd attachment, point 3
  • The extent of the “Haven Gateway” planning sub-region - comments on the EEIP (above), point 11a

We intend to add to this as we do further work on such documents, especially Babergh District Council’s emerging Local Development Framework.

We also intend to use this material as a basis for discussions with other amenity bodies, parish councils and other local interests, with a view to increasing the influence of this work.

We should be happy to receive any comments - please forward them to the Secretary: enquiries@dedhamvalesociety.org.uk
