We amended our draft and have now submitted the Reg 16 Consultation to RDC.  See relevant website pages above for full info about these.

Based on the comments collected at the second meeting, held in February 2016, two proposals for the vision statement of our neighbourhood plan were put forward:

1. Our Vision for Crowhurst is to maintain its 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.

2. Our Vision for Crowhurst in the future is that the Parish will continue to thrive and provide for the needs of its residents by:
Protecting the rural character and natural environment of the Parish that makes it such an enjoyable place to live;
Enhancing the provision of essential rural services and infrastructure to enable residents to live and work in the community and beyond;
Improving community facilities for all ages;
Ensuring new developments are sustainable and minimise adverse environmental effects and road traffic impact.

Crowhurst Neighbourhood Plan members at the meeting on 24th March showed a preference for the wording in the first Vision. In the village 
survey, 98% of respondents agreed. Therefore, the first vision wording was finalised and approved for use. 

​Please get involved by coming to the next meeting. You can contribute, raise concerns or just listen and learn more about what we are doing and the progress of Crowhurst's Neighbourhood Plan.
