The planning process

The Bury St Edmunds Society was formed in 1971 after St John’s Street was threatened with demolition.  Involvement in the planning process is an important part of what we do each month.

One recent issue that we have been involved with is the Town Centre Master Plan.  We organised two open meetings with the Churchgate Area Association where local people could find out about plans and have a say in the future of their town.


We continue to provide a voice on issues that impact upon our local environment.  We monitor matters of local importance, often before they reach the public domain, encouraging a balanced approach. Some planning process matters are reported in our Review.


So  you can add your voice to planning issues in Bury St Edmunds by contacting us.
