Public Engagement and Consultation

Public Engagement and Consultation

NFGN will be a place that is connected, inclusive, resilient, green, and vibrant, putting people at its heart. Meaningful engagement and consultation from the out-set of the project is key to creating a thriving community that is inviting to residents at all stages of life and is truly integrated with Felixstowe and the countryside surrounding the site. The hope is that it will also establish the foundations for future community stewardship.

Stakeholder Forum

The Stakeholder Forum will bring together various local, technical, industry and future user representatives. The objective of the Forum is - like a that of a town hall meeting - to provide an open line of communication enabling stakeholders to be kept up to date regarding North Felixstowe and ensuring the needs of communities are being considered.

Citizens' Panel

East Suffolk Council are forming a Citizens' Panel for residents to share ideas and views in a workshop series starting in January 2024, shaping a new neighbourhood to the north of Felixstowe. A Citizens Panel is a demographically representative group of local people that are brought together to learn about, deliberate on, and reach conclusions about what they think should happen. These workshops will explore issues around addressing climate change, community facilities, affordable housing, energy, and local employment. Participation will be remunerated to kind.

A series of public workshops are being planned for specific interest groups which will run alongside the citizens panel series. We are still developing the detail and timings of these, but potential themes include Sports and Leisure, Nature Recovery, Food Resilience, Affordable Housing and Arts and Culture. These workshops are likely to be hosted online, we will provide more detail here as it becomes available.
