Thank you to the 43 people who took part in the recent 'Issues & Options Consultation' undertaken for the Diss and District Neighbourhood Plan for Brome and Oakley.

The final total across the Plan's area was 961.

The results are available to view below. 

A second consultation needs to start soon, and we really do need as many people from Brome and Oakley to take part, so fliers will be delivered during November. 

Brome & Oakley Steering Group representatives are Roger Broughton and Ursula Halton

Brome and Oakley rural villages in north Suffolk. They are the two wards which are represented by Brome and Oakley Parish Council with four Councillors representing each ward. The Council is pleased to be involved with the Diss and District Neigbourhood Plan and hopes that it will enable the smaller parishes to have a voice in planning for their future.


Brome has the challenges of the industrial development of Eye Airfield, a large part of which is within the parish boundary for Brome and the notoriously busy A140 running through the western part of the village. Oakley has the designated lorry route of the B1118 running through its lower part.


Like many rural parishes we want to consider items such as traffic and speed management, improved broadband, cycle routes and footpaths and enable our villages to grow in a way that is appropriate to the needs of the local people. We welcome the chance to engage with our parishioners and our consultation process will start shortly.

Local Issues:
  • Improvement needed on junctions with the A140 to make them safer for turning traffic. 

  • Rat-running on minor roads

  • Impact of planned growth at Eye Airfield and in Eye

  • Proportionate housing growth

  • Provision of better public transport links to sustain employment opportunities in rural locations
