Village Survey on Shortlisted Sites

Shortlisted Sites and Housing Needs Survey

We have now got to the stage of shortlisting five sites for further investigation. Our Street Champions will soon be delivering a two-part survey to every home in Crowhurst.

In PART A we need you to tell us which of these sites you believe would be most suitable for potential new housing in the village. As well as seeking your views on the shortlisted sites there are some questions about the environment, road safety, parking and community facilities. Please complete one Part A per PERSON

PART B includes questions about you and your families' own housing needs so that we are able to balance the requirements of Rother District Council with the actual needs of village residents. Please complete one Part B per HOUSEHOLD

The latest news is that we now have a shortlist of possible sites for development in the village. These sites are based on feedback from Crowhurst residents who came to see the Sites Exhibitions held over four days at the end of March / beginning of April.  We had over 500 responses and the shortlist emerged from these. If you would like to see comments on all sites and a summary of positive/negative responses please download the documents on the HOME PAGE
The next step is a public consultation that looks at these sites in more detail and every household in the village will have an opportunity to comment further. Please bear in mind tha…
