The Lawshall Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by Lawshall Parish Council and will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
At its Full Council meeting on 24 October 2017, Babergh District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the Lawshall NDP following a 93% vote in favour of doing so by local residents.
The Plan, which covers the period up to 2036, now forms part of the development plan framework for the District and is one of the main considerations in determining planning applications submitted in Lawshall unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
The Lawshall NDP went through a number of key stages before being made:
Independent Examination (Aug 2017)
Submission Consultation (13 Feb - 31 Mar 2017)
Area Designation (8 Dec 2015)
