Brome and Oakley are rural villages in north Suffolk.  They are physically separate ribbon settlements, bounded by the Eye Airfield industrial development and the busy A140 trunk road on the western margin of Brome, and with the B1118 designated lorry route running through Lower Oakley.  Traffic speed and safety are therefore significant concerns of many parishioners, as is the protection of the natural environment and the villages’ rural character.

Brome and Oakley Parish Council will influence the Neighbourhood Plan to balance the wishes of local parishioners, landowners and other stakeholders to enable our villages to grow in a way that is appropriate to local needs, is sustainable, and is respectful of our natural environment. 


We welcome the opportunity to engage further with our parishioners as the Plan progresses and as the easing of COVID restrictions permits wider dialogue.

Community Consultation

In support of the Neighbourhood Plan, two public consultations took place in August and November 2020.  The results and associated comments have been invaluable in shaping the plan as it relates to sites in Brome and Oakley for possible housing development, protection of Local Green Spaces, important views and local non designated heritage assets.

The results  of the first consultation are available to view below. 

The results of the second consultation can be viewed here.
