Hailsham Town Council invites local residents to attend its next Neighbourhood Planning public engagement events which will be held at the Civic Community Hall in Vicarage Lane on Friday 11th August (10am-noon) and Friday 18th August (2pm-4.30pm).
Residents will be able to find out more about the draft policies of the Hailsham Neighbourhood Plan at both consultation events and help the Neighbourhood Planning Committee identify priorities for local infrastructure and other provision in the future.
More information about the neighbourhood planning process will be available, including the Committee’s achievements to date and residents will have the opportunity to view maps and display stands, ask Committee members any questions about the way forward with the Plan and have their say on how future housing development can best be accommodated in the future.
Free softplay equipment will be available for children aged 0-5 years at both events.
More information on both public engagement events will be announced in the coming weeks.
“The Hailsham Neighbourhood Plan is our opportunity to plan the future of our town and we would like as many interested people as possible to attend the public engagement events in August, find out more what this all about and see if you can contribute,” said Councillor Glenn Moore, chairman of the Neighbourhood Planning Committee.
“Although the Town Council is responsible for leading the process, it is our commitment, by way of public consultation exercises such as these, that residents and the community at large determine our town’s future, its design, provision of facilities and infrastructure needed to support future housing growth.”
“The opinions and findings of everyone who has taken part in our consultations to date have been addressed and I’d encourage residents to come along in August and be part of the neighbourhood planning process.”
