Housing Policies H1 - Spatial Plan H2 - Housing Site Allocation H3 - Mix of Housing Sizes and Tenures H4 - Affordable Housing H5 - The design of New Buildings Introduction Developing a neighbourhood plan is a community-led process which encourages local people to shape and influence development within the places where they live and work. Past and Present The parish is situated within the High Weald AONB and its landscape has barely changed since medieval times. Historically, Ticehurst was largely a rural community which derived its livelihood from farming and woodland management. As these have become less viable, farms have diversified and small trades and services provide much of the employment. Developing a Shared Vision Each stage of the neighbourhood plan process to date has sought to extend the amount of common ground between all sections of the community, narrowing down various options through a transparent and open process.
