The Burwash Neighbourhood Development Plan gives residents the opportunity to create planning policies for Burwash and protect the village from unsuitable development built purely for profit.
The draft plan is in the final week of the consultation stage. Unless people comment on it and are seen to be involved, the plan may be judged not to have residents’ support. The responses so far have been welcome and we look forward to and value all those yet to arrive to ensure the plan can move onto the next stage without problems.
The draft plan has involved two years of research and a call for sites (which allows for people to propose sites for housing). Many residents have worked on this project.
The closing date for responses is 18th July. If you have not already submitted your response please do so now and encourage friends and neighbours to do the same. Please remember every member of the household can make a response. Every view matters
If you prefer, leave your handwritten feedback in one of the comment collection boxes at Burwash Common Pavilion, Jarvis the Butchers or in the red post box outside the Internet cafe. If you want to download a copy of the feedback leaflet, please click here.
Printed copies of the draft plan and feedback leaflets are available at the Internet cafe in Burwash. The cafe is open 10 am to 1 pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
