Crowhurst Neighbourhood Plan
​​ Your Vision
         Our Future
Welcome to the website of the Crowhurst Neighbourhood Plan

According to Rother District Council’s development plans, Crowhurst MUST have at least 20 new housing units. Without a Neighbourhood Plan villagers will have no say on where this new housing goes or on what kind of housing is built. A Neighbourhood Plan gives the village power to influence the type and location of new housing. It also creates an organisation that can access funds for future village development that would otherwise not be available to us. This affects everybody living in the village so please get involved by coming to the next meeting or contacting us. You can contribute, raise concerns or just listen and learn more about what we all need to do.

The Neighbourhood Plan Vision is to maintain the village’s rural character by protecting the countryside and environment around its boundaries, promoting community spirit and enhancing infrastructure, facilities and services for residents of all ages. This vision was endorsed by 98% of respondents in our first consultative village survey held in July 2016.

We are also compiling a list of interesting buildings around the Parish - old or new. If there are any buildings that you think fit this, please let us know. A photo would be great if possible, along with where the building is and why you think it is interesting.
