The Parish Assembly has been cancelled due to the Corona Virus. We will review this again later in the year.

Neighbourhood Planning

Our Neighbourhood Plan passed the referendum in June 2019 and was formally made by Rother District Council. The Plan now forms part of the legal planning process for Crowhurst and Rother District Council.  The final plan can be seen here as can the meeting minutes and reports to the Council of the new working party ( see below).

A Working Party has now been formed to monitor progress and to advise the Council on the implementation of the Aims stated in the Neighbourhood Plan. This is a working party of the Council and will also include residents from the Parish. The Terms of Reference for this working party can be viewed here.


Will all residents please ensure that any trees or hedges on their property that border a public highway or footpath are cut, so that they do not cause obstruction. If hedges are left uncut after being requested to cut them back the Parish Council will ask ESCC to carry out the work and charge the landowner.
