Hurst Green is a medium sized Parish in East Sussex and straddles the A21 main road from Hastings to London.
It lies mid-way between Tunbridge Wells to the north and Hastings to the south.
The parish is entirely contained within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Hurst Green is taking the opportunity given by the Localism Act of 2011 to have a genuine influence on the future development of our community by creating a Neighbourhood Plan. Find out more about the plan and the many ways to get involved by visiting the Neighbourhood Plan section of our site.
Please contribute their views on housing in our area by taking our Neighbourhood Plan housing survey. The survey is being conducted both online and also through a paper copy that will be delivered to each household shortly, or that can be downloaded and returned.
The Parish Council is seeking support for an initiative to improve access and facilities at Stage Field, a public open space owned by the council. Although well served by a public footpath, access by car is very hazardous. The Parish Council has planning permission for a new access point and a small parking area, but we need resident support to enable us to access grants which will enable the project to be completed.
Parish Council gives notice that a casual vacancy has occurred for a parish councillor due to the resignation of Councillor Ian Peacock.
A further two vacancies are also open for co-option.
