This consultation has now closed, thank you for visiting.  We will publish the results shortly when we have analysed the results.  A huge thank you for those of you who sent your comments.  It was very much appreciated.


Burwash Parish Council (BPC) now seeks your views on this draft Plan during a six-week consultation period which ended on 18 July 2019.  This was your chance to influence the Neighbourhood Development Plan for our three Burwash villages.


If you want to get in touch with the Steering Group, you can do so by emailing

Printed copies of the entire Plan and Appendices are available via the Parish Clerk e-mail    

Following this consultation, BPC will consider and respond to the comments received from the community before submitting a revised Plan to Rother District Council (RDC) after which it will be subject to consideration by an independent Examiner. If this is approved by the Examiner we aim to hold the required local community referendum on the NDP in the autumn. A majority vote in favour of the NDP will allow the Plan to be formally adopted. Thereafter it must be taken into account by developers, planners and local authorities when making or considering new developments in our Parish.
