Salehurst and Robertsbridge Neighbourhood Plan

The Salehurst and Robertsbridge Neighbourhood Plan is being developed by Salehurst and Robertsbridge Parish Council in order to guide development in the Parish until 2028, in line with the adopted Rother Local Plan Core Strategy.

Salehurst and Robertsbridge Parish Council submitted the Salehurst and Robertsbridge Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents, including the Strategic Environmental Assessment, to Rother District Council in accordance with Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

Rother District Council carried out a formal public consultation on the submitted Plan, in accordance with Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) between Friday 10 February and Friday 24 March 2017.
