Hurst Green is taking the opportunity given by the Localism Act of 2011 to have a genuine influence on the future development of our own community by creating a Neighbourhood Plan which will carry full legal status once it is made (adopted).
Working in close cooperation with the District Planners but always with the best interests of Hurst Green, the Steering Group and its Task Groups are predominantly made up of volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to get involved, please do contact the Clerk or any of the Council's Councillors.
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group meets once a month, usually on the third Tuesday of each month at the Village Hall starting at 7.30pm. All meetings are open to the public, who are warmly invited to come along to hear about progress.
Residents are asked to contribute their views on housing in our area by taking our housing survey. The survey is being conducted both online and also through a paper copy which has been delivered to each household in the Parish, or that can be downloaded and returned.
Our initial and extended open Call for Housing Sites has concluded, where residents, landowners and other interested parties were invited to submit suggestions to help identify land within Hurst Green Parish which has potential for new housing and other uses. Find out where and more on the dedicated Call for Sites section.
