As the number of victims fleeing the horrors of war in Ukraine increases, several people in the local area are thinking about offering homes or other support to refugees.
During development of Laxfield’s Neighbourhood Plan last year many villagers identified road safety as a priority for the village. Laxfield Parish Council is now exploring opportunities to designate certain rural lanes in the village as “Quiet Lanes” as part of a county-wide project. We feel that this would be of real benefit to the village and those who visit.
We have proposed 3 routes in our village.
As part of the formal public consultation process, proposals were discussed at an Open Forum (held remotely via Zoom) on 12 April 2021.

Over the last couple of months many people have been offering help and support in Laxfield to people who are self-isolated or shielding due to COVID-19 - We’re very lucky to live in such a caring community and in many ways, it seems that the current situation has brought us closer together.
Following on from this, we’ve had a lot of support from the Church, the Chapel, Parish Council and others in Laxfield for setting up a Good Neighbour Scheme so that we can continue to support people living in the area, once this pandemic is over. It would be a great legacy from this challenging time.

A group of people from different organisations from around the Parish, has been formed to help people in and around Laxfield: whether it’s those who are self-isolating, or those who are struggling to provide assertional meals for children who would normally receive free school meals but are not able to attend school at the moment …. or anyone else who might need something we can help with!
This group is being co-ordinated by Sue Gleave. To contact Sue click here
Mid Suffolk District Council has confirmed it has more than five years' supply of building land available to developers.
That’s enough to remove the presumption in favour of planning approval and to make the emerging Laxfield Neighbourhood Plan and the district’s Joint Local Plan “material considerations” in planning applications.
The Parish Council does not ban dogs from the playing field lightly, it is for everyone's SAFETY.
Dog owners - please clear up after your four-legged friend and either take it home to dispose of or use one of the five designated dog bins which are located around the village and paid for out of your council tax.
