Suffolk Design: Streets Guide
Suffolk County Council has commissioned the production of Suffolk Design: Streets Guide, a new design guide to update existing guidance for new residential developments, and is asking members of the public for feedback in shaping the guidance.
A public consultation was held December 2020 - February 2021. Following an eight week public consultation on Suffolk Design: Streets Guide, a report of the consultation will be published when the Streets Guide is presented to Suffolk County Council’s Cabinet.
