APPLICATIONS CONTINUE TO FLOOD IN

Planning Applications since May 2020 total  over 3200. Catch up on the figures HERE

WEALDEN DIRECTION OF TRAVEL CONSULTATION BEGINS

Wealden District Council have released their "Direction of Travel" document and consultation. To see a breakdown of this (It's a long read) please find it on Heathfield Green Space HERE

ANOTHER GREEN SPACE DEVELOPMENT PROPOSED

A planning application has been submitted for 31 houses on SHARNFOLD FARM just north of Stone Cross. However this would seem to be the potential "thin end of the wedge" as it seems clear that the owners would like to build 400+ properties on this agricultural space. This area forms part of a natural barrier between the urban sprawls of "Greater Eastbourne" and Hailsham. Both aesthetically AND culturally we believe this barrier needs to be retained. There is a Facebook group - Stop Sharnfold Development - you can find them HERE

Crowborough Townspeople

Crowborough’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is now under threat by the proposed development of 119 Houses (WD/2017/2197/MAO) in the fields adjoining the Goldsmith Recreation Ground, Luxford Farm (listed building) and fronting Eridge Road.  Please help by completing their survey HERE

CLIMATE GROUP RESPOND TO GOVERNMENT WHITE PAPER CONSULTATION

CSE (Centre for Sustainable Energy) have published their response to the Government White Paper. If you're concerned about our Carbon footprint and Climate change, this document will make interesting reading. Please find it HERE

Housing Charity SHELTER now tells us that 40% of houses with Planning

permission never get built, and that Planning permission is clearly NOT the problem
