Ten-year plan for village development to be scrutinised

DETAILS of a 10-year plan which will guide development in Salehurst and Robertsbridge will be scrutinised at a public hearing

An independent examiner will be looking at all aspects of the plan, which identifies sites in the parish for future development and policies regarding the economy, infrastructure and the environment.

The Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted for examination by Salehurst and Robertsbridge Parish Council following a formal public consultation earlier this year. It will be used to guide the consideration of any future planning applications.

The hearing, which will be held on Thursday, September 28, will be open to the public.

Independent examiner John Slater said: "As part of my examination I will be reviewing all documents and representations submitted during the consultation process.

"One particular aspect of the plan that I will be focusing on at the hearing is the parish council's proposed allocation for new housing in Robertsbridge for the period up to 2028, and will be discussing the merits of other proposed sites with invited participants. We will also be looking at some local green space designations"

The hearing, which starts at 9.30am, will be held at Robertsbridge Youth Centre in George Hill. Only participants identified and invited by the examiner to make oral representations will be able to give evidence.
