Lawshall's Neighbourhood Plan was passed in October 2017. The final version of the plan can be found here. The Plan passed into planning law after a referendum with the following results:

Babergh's Final Decision Statemenent on the Plan can be found here. The Neighbourhood Plan Team was disbanded in November 2018. Members of the team have been appointed by the Parish Council as 'Neighbourhood Plan Watchdogs'. Their role is to help the PC identify how incoming planning proposals sit with the policies in the Neighbourhood Plan. This then then helps the PC in formulating their comments to the District Council who are responsible for decisions on planning applications.
