Crowhurst Neighbourhood Development Plan

This is the final version of the 
Crowhurst Neighbourhood Development Plan (CNDP) that will now be submitted to Rother Council and the Regulation 16 Final Consultation. 

The Plan and its supplementary documentation and reference material was finalised using the information and feedback collected during the 6 week consultation period (January 16th - February 28th 2018) on the DRAFT PLAN (REG 14 Consulation). 

This page will remain public and further comments and feedback cna be submitted using the downloadable form at the bottom of the page. 

Thank you all very much. Without your support and engagement this would not have been possible. We look forward to a future in our village in which the community continues to come first.
