Strand Meadow

The proposal by Park Lane Group to develop 30 dwellings on land at the end of Strand Meadow, running across the back of Burwash village playing fields, which obtained outline planning permission last year, will be discussed at the next Rother District Council (RDC) Planning Committee on January 17, 2019.  RDC officers have recommended the development in full with a ‘later stage’ S106 which means that the development will be reviewed once 50% of the houses have been sold to see what price they actually go for.  RDC are accepting the full loss of the affordable housing on this condition. Over 400 objections to the scheme have been received by RDC.

There are a number of conditions which are required before the development is to go ahead. In particular Councillors have questioned how the construction vehicles will get to the site considering the current issues of parking and access residents face on a daily basis.  There is a requirement of a Construction Management Plan in section 8 of the conditions starting on page 24.
