Update to the below story - revised plans and new dealine 17/11/16:
Please be vigilant and keep a close eye on WD/2016/2268/F . The Developers are up to their tricks - a revised plan is imminent and the closure date for comments is 17th Nov.
Here is the earlier post:
Village Concern have sent a new post - they ask you to please take a look at their website and follow the button 'Planning Applications of Major Concern' which is a new menu button at the top of their site http://villageconcerns2016.co.uk
WD/2016/2268/F is about the erection of 2 houses on land at the top of Buttsfield Lane. This Hesmond Stud application is based on vehicle access from Buttsfield Lane, i.e. tarmac extension of an unadopted lane over the Wealdway footpath, requiring destruction of hedgerow and trees in order to get width for vehicles and construction traffic.
They go to say in their post:
"If the development goes ahead then:
All vehicle access be from the existing stud access road; not across a public footpath.
Just imagine construction traffic using Buttsfield Lane! and what right has a Hesmond Stud development got to extend an unadopted road over our public footpath."
They also ask you to see 'Infrastructure' for reports from Southern Water, Power Networks, the School and traffic.
Please note that there will be a Village Concerns public meeting in the church at 7.30pm, 18th Oct.
