    If you would like to make representations, please complete a representation form and return it to nplans@wealden.gov.uk or post to Planning Policy, Wealden District Council, Vicarage Lane, Hailsham, BN27 2AX. Please be aware that all comments received will be publicly available and may be included on our website.

    Early in May the final public consultation on the Draft Plan will commence. It is a statutory consultation held under Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) under which local businesses, residents, community and interest groups can make formal representations in support of or objection to the Draft Plan. The consultation period will last for six weeks. The Draft Plan can be viewed on the Hellingly Parish Council website and hard copies will be available for inspection at the Hailsham Public Library in Western Road, Hailsham and at the Wealden District Council offices in Vicarage Lane, Hailsham.

    The District Council will pass all representations to the Planning Inspectorate who will examine the Draft Plan. A public local hearing may be held if considered necessary. If the examiner approves the Draft Plan as having followed the correct procedures and being in a compliance with Government and Local Planning policies, Wealden District Council will take a decision to proceed to referendum of all registered electors within Hellingly Parish towards the end of this year.

    It is intended that the consultation on both the Hellingly and Hailsham Neighbourhood Development Plans will be held concurrently and, for convenience, considered by the same examiner. If all goes well and they are approved by the referendums, they will be the first such Plans to be adopted in Wealden following the one for Herstmonceux.


    Regular updates will be placed in the Hellingly Highlights.
