7.38 Kessingland is the largest village in Waveney with a range of shops and services and employment provided by tourism and a number of small business units.

7.39 Kessingland has recently prepared a Neighbourhood Plan which was 'made' by Waveney District Council in January 2017. The Neighbourhood Plan sets out a vision and strategy for the village which the District Council strongly supports. The Neighbourhood Plan allocates 3 sites for housing, totalling 105 houses. The Neighbourhood Plan also allocates land for an Early Years Centre and a care facility. All allocations are shown on the Policies Map.

7.40 Given the significant levels of housing allocated by the Neighbourhood Plan which will help support and enhance service provision in the village, it is not considered necessary to allocate further development to Kessingland in this Local Plan.
