Lowestoft Town Council is in the process of bringing forward the Lowestoft Neighbourhood Development Plan.
A Stakeholder Consultation version of the Local Green Spaces document can be found here.
As explained on page 6 of the document, under para 101 of the National Planning Policy Framework a Neighbourhood Development Plan can safeguard areas of local green space. Other policies within the Plan will also offer protection to recreation and park land.
The document sets out the proposed designation of areas of open space within Lowestoft. The Town Council welcomes your opinion. Please respond to our Stakeholder Consultation by 5.00 pm on Friday 5 August 2022 by submitting comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
The Climate Emergency and Ecological Committee are planning some exciting things over the next few months and beyond and would love to have members of the public involved! One public representative has already been appointed but the Committee would love to add another public voice from interested parties.
The Committee, which meets on the first Tuesday of every month, are welcoming expressions of interest from members of the public to join the Committee and be a voice for Lowestoft as the Town Council looks at how we can work towards being carbon-neutral and raise awareness of climate change.
As part of the Committee, you’ll be helping to plan the Town Council’s upcoming “Great Big Green Weekend” – a festival taking place in Sparrows Nest at the end of September promoting eco-initiatives, discussion and practices – discuss ways of promoting and supporting environmentally-friendly initiatives in Lowestoft, and exploring actions that the Town Council can take in line with our Climate Declaration.
If you would like to be a part of this important Committee, expressions of interest including reasons why the role interests you should be submitted to us at email@example.com. The full Terms of Reference are available to view here.
Expressions of interest are welcomed by Friday 26th August ready for discussion at the Committee’s meeting on Tuesday 6th September. We look forward to hearing from you!

The final piece of the Whitton Green Project was opened today with demonstrations on how to use the new Gym Equipment.
Lowestoft Town Council are delighted that what started as a public consultation back in 2019 on how the site could be used now sees the launch of the completed concept with the retained caged sports arena, the children’s play park and the outdoor fitness equipment.
Many thanks to the team from Kompan who came and demonstrated all the equipment and how to use the app. The app is free to download and gives you a quick demonstration on each piece of equipment, some recommended workouts, and saves your progress (so you can keep coming back and improving!)
