Battle Civil Parish Neighbourhood Plan is made

At an extra-ordinary meeting of Rother District Council on 18th October, the Battle Civil Parish Neighbourhood Plan was formally made.

This is the result of five year’s work by a dedicated team of volunteers, including Town Councillors, from the community who are thanked for their stalwartness to bring this to completion.

Government grant funding has covered the majority of the expenditure required to prepare a site assessment and employ a specialist consultant to prepare the Plan documents for submission.

All planning applications within the Battle Civil Parish area will now have to comply with the made Plan, which includes Battle Civil Parish Design Guidelines, and also the High Weald AONB Housing Design Guide.

The Plan will be monitored by the Council’s Implementation, Monitoring & Review Sub-Committee to ensure the Plan remains current and recommend any updates if necessary.
