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.
The final plan is here……. The Parish Council have approved the final version of the Plan. Your views changed the draft plan and it took time to consider these.  The draft plan consultation event page has the details. The final plan has been published by Rother District Council (RDC). From now on, only the Independent Examiner can change the plan. Use the links below to get more information: The final plan in a more web friendly viewing version below. A summary of the changes to the draft plan and TNP documents are in Neighbourhood News 26.  The final plan and associated documents for Regulation 16 are available on the evidence page The draft plan consultation event page shows the results as well the activities during this period. Now that RDC has published the plan what happens next? What happens next? Friday 9th November to Friday 21st December 2018. RDC have examined the documents and confirmed that they meet the regulations. It has published our plan on their website (Regulation 16) for six weeks, from 9am Friday 9th November to 4.30pm Friday 21st December. There is a poster created by RDC to publicise it. 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 heve logged these representations. Duly made representations have been processed and are published on the RDC website. Early This Year 2019 The Independent Examiner has been confirmed as John Slater, see Neighbourhood News 28 for more details. 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. His initial view is that he should be able to deal with the examination of the Plan without holding a public hearing, but reserves the right to do so. Based on a preliminary consideration there are a small number of matters he wishes to receive further representation from TPC and RDC, these are detailed in his initial comments. In his initial comments he asked for a response from TPC and RDC. The TPC has published its response with 9 associated documents on the evidence page and RDC has published its response on their website. If he decides 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?
