The Lavenham Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by Lavenham Parish Council and will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
At its Full Council meeting on 20 September 2016, Babergh District Council resolved to ‘make’ (adopt) the Lavenham NDP following a 91% vote in favour of doing so by local residents.
The Plan, which covers the period up to 2031, now forms part of the development plan framework for the District and is one of the main considerations in determining any future planning applications submitted in Lavenham unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
The Lavenham NDP went through a number of key stages before being made.
Independent Examination (Apr 2016)
Submission Consultation (Jan - Feb 2016)
Area Designation (Sept 2013)
