Building for Business - What would you do?

St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Forest Heath Council are currently assessing the availability of residential and employment land, and they want to hear from local businesses regarding where future employment land should be developed in our area. 

Each year St Edmundsbury and Forest Health Councils review their list of over 300 sites that have been put forward by landowners and developers. In the past this exercise has been to understand how many new homes can realistically be built, but this year they need to look at housing and employment land together.

It is important that businesses share their views on current potential sites, as well as raising awareness of new sites that the council may not know about, so join us for this interactive event and get your voice heard.

This event will cover:

  • A summary of the SHELAA project, how the council assesses the availability of land and why
  • A discussion about the type of employment land that’s needed, particularly in Forest Heath
  • An explanation of the ‘call for sites’ process, where sites can be proposed for development, and how businesses can participate in this process.
