Strategy & Development Committee
This committee is responsible for preparing & co-ordinating the Town Council's 5 year Strategic Plan, and the 5yr review of the Framlingham Neighbourhood Plan 2016 – 2031.
It receives and evaluates applications for Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) spending on behalf of the Council. It produces quarterly reports on the Framlingham Infrastructure Investment Plan (FIIP), and prepares the annual District CIL spending application to East Suffolk Council.
Strategy & Development committee meetings usually take place on the second Wednesday of each month.
A Signpost to our Future
We have collectively prepared this plan using five main themes to signpost the direction we will take to achieve our vision: Financial Stability, Community Needs, Protecting Our Environment, Building Partnerships, and Growing Our Economy
The strategy will be reviewed annually.
Developing the Towns Economy
Working with Framlingham businesses and local business and tourist organisations we aim to help develop & improve the towns economy, employment opportunities and strategic initiatives.
We liaise with and assist ESC Economic Development team on behalf of the town council.
We work towards maximising opportunities for grant funding in relation to expanding "footfall" in the town .
Framlingham Infrastructure Investment Plan (FIIP)
Quarterly Report: Identifying, Monitoring and Prioritising Infrastructure Needs.
This document explains the purpose of the Framlingham Infrastructure Investment Plan (FIIP) and how it will help the town council, together with our community, identify our infrastructure needs and prioritise our spending to deliver local projects, monitor our progress, and deliver them within acceptable time frames.
Whilst the document discusses a number of different funding streams, it is important to remember that there is a 5-year spending deadline for the Town Council to spend the Neighbourhood CIL we have received.
This is a working document which is updated quarterly
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) grant applications have to meet specific criteria intended to develop needed facilities in the town, and are considered every month - there are no application deadlines for this grant.
As the criteria for meeting the Local Government conditions are complex applicants are welcome to discuss their proposal with Councillor Chair prior to submission.
Framlingham Neighbourhood Plan 2016-2031
The Framlingham Neighbourhood Plan covers the whole of Framlingham Parish.
It was agreed by Referendum of all residents in March 2017 and now forms part of the statutory planning consultation process for new development within the Physical Limits Boundary of the town.
Review of the Neighbourhood Plan - 2021
We have been working on a review of the plan since September 2021, however a recent planning decision has caused us to defer this activity for the time being.
