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.
