Projects for 2023

New Hedge – The Recreation Ground

In January, a 350-metre hedge will be laid on the boundary of the Recreation Ground. The plants are being supplied free of charge by Babergh District Council as part of their strategy to improve the green footprint of the district. This will encourage biodiversity in our community, and we hope this will be the first of many initiatives in Lavenham.

Harwood Place Play Area

The Parish Council conducted community engagement with residents located in the vicinity of Harwood Place in 2022. This followed a previous consultation on the future use of the play area. A majority of residents expressed the view that they would like to see this area refurbished and made available for children to play together safely. The Council is currently seeking estimates of costs to relay the surface and provide play equipment.
