Neighbourhood Plan

Lowestoft Town Council has been designated the whole of the parish area of Lowestoft to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan for. One of the aims of the new Town Council, when formed in 2017, was to produce a plan which looked at development and regeneration of the town as well as protecting the environment and heritage. After a period of delays with the area designation the plan is now moving forward and it is vital that people, businesses and organisations engage with the making of the plan. Regular updates will be posted here.

Neighbourhood Plans have the opportunity to designate Local Green Spaces which are of particular importance to the town. This will afford protection from development (other than in very special circumstances). Local Green Spaces should only be designated if the green space is:

  • In reasonably close proximity to the community it serves
  • Demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquillity or richness of its wildlife 
  • Local in character and not an extensive tract of land. 

We would like you to consider which open spaces you value in the Town and let us know if you would like them to be considered for designation via the emerging Plan.  Email admin@lowestofttowncouncil.uk
