Formal Consultation By Rother District Council (Regulation 16)


As our Neighbourhood Plan has reached the 'submission' stage, it is the role of Rother District Council (as the local planning authority) to publicise the Neighbourhood Plan.


Rother District Council (RDC) is therefore currently carrying out formal public consultation on the submitted Salehurst & Robertsbridge Neighbourhood Plan.


The consultation runs from 9am, Friday 10th February until 4:30pm, Friday 24 March 2017.

Many people at the exhibition on the Saturday asked if the maps and other material could be available to look at again.


Here is a map showing most of the proposed sites. Please note however that it is not quite complete - there are a couple more plots of land between the site marked "Pound Platt" and the large Mill site.
