Lavant Parish Council

Neighbourhood Plan

What is Neighbourhood Planning?


The Localism Act 2011 introduced statutory Neighbourhood Planning in England. It enables communities to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan for their area and is intended to give communities more of a say in the development of their local area.


The Lavant Neighbourhood Development Plan was made in August 2017.


A copy of the made Plan may be found here.
