Hurst Green is currently producing a neighbourhood plan. An important part of the process requires us to identify land within Hurst Green Parish which has potential for new housing and other uses. We are particularly interested in sites for new housing which are within or adjacent to Hurst Green village, Swiftsden and Silver Hill.
Whilst the initial call for sites period ran from the 18th of June until 10th of August 2018, in-line with many local authorities, the call for sites process remains open for any new sites. Not all sites will be necessary or acceptable. The call for sites does not determine if a site should be allocated for development. It is a technical exercise aimed at identifying potential sites for development. With public consultation, the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will then consider how best to take the plan forward.
The housing task group are currently working on the initial assessment of sites as part of the initial Housing Site Assessment (HSA) process. As part of this process the task group are working towards presenting these to residents at an event for feedback.
Select the area you are interested in to jump to that map. You can also download high resolution versions of these maps from the resources section of the site.
Anyone with land which meets the above description and who would like it to be considered within the Plan is asked to register this interest with us. The easiest way to do this is by using the Call for Sites - Online Submission Form. This will give us the information we need to make sure your site is properly assessed.
Please do not submit sites that:
- already have planning permission for development unless it is being promoted for a different land use; or
- are wholly outside of Hurst Green parish; or
- are already included within the Rother District Council's Draft Development and Site Allocations Local Plan (all sites within this draft plan will be automatically added to the assessment)
If you have already been in touch, we will be writing to you confirming your submission and requesting some further necessary details.
We would like to hear from local residents, business owners and other interested parties, and would like to invite suggestions of sites within the parish of Hurst Green that may be suitable for future development and inclusion in the Hurst Green Neighbourhood Plan, either for housing development or for the creation of new public spaces. Please use the Quick Suggestion Form to let us know of sites that you would like the Neighbourhood Plan team to investigate with a view to adding to the assessment.
If you are unable to use the online forms, or would prefer a paper copy of the submission form, please contact the Clerk to the Council.
