Sections Neighbourhood Plan Aims & Objectives Neighbourhood Plan Vision Statement Neighbourhood Plan Major Aims 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. 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.

This allows statutory bodies (e.g. ESCC, Natural England, utilities etc.) and others, including individuals, to put forward representations – they can Object, Support or Comment on any part of the plan – and RDC will log these representations. Please do not send representations to us, but we would certainly welcome general support statements sent to RDC. ONLINE or EMAIL: Go to www.rother.gov.uk/Ticehurst-Neighbourhood-Plan to download the documents and representation form. You can then complete and submit the representation form online or send it by email to ticehurstnp.reps@rother.gov.uk POST: Your completed representation form can also be submitted by post to: Service Manager- Strategy & Planning, Consultation on the Submission Ticehurst Neighbourhood Plan, Rother District Council, Town Hall, Bexhill, East Sussex, TN39 3JX.

Early Next Year 2019 RDC and Ticehurst Parish Council (TPC) have already applied for an Independent Examiner, to start at the beginning of February 2019. The Independent Examiner will take all the documentation, including the representations from Regulation 16, and consider whether the plan conforms to the legal requirements for neighbourhood plans. He may decide to hold a public hearing: this would extend the expected time for this stage from 8 to 12 weeks (although it has taken longer – up to 6 months – in some parishes). He will then write a report, probably recommending modifications before the plan can go to referendum. What does the plan mean to the steering team?
