The Parish Council has made a formal response on behalf of the Parish to consultations which have been submitted separately via NALC (National Association of Local Councils) and the answers have also been entered directly into the online Government Survey. If you would like to see the Parish Council’s response please click on the link under each heading above. These have also been copied to MP Huw Merriman.
A combined working party made up of local Parish Councils, including Burwash and the local pressure group Save Our Fields is also looking at ways to respond to these consultations by approaching MPs and other ways to get the public’s opinion heard. If you would like to look at what Save Our Fields is doing then please visit their separate website. They have also created a micro site which makes it easy for you to locate and contact your local MP.
