Hailsham Town Council will commence a six-week consultation soon in which residents can say what is needed in the town to support future housing development and what should be covered by the emerging Hailsham Neighbourhood Plan.

The consultation period will run from Saturday 4th June to Saturday 16th July 2016.

Questionnaires, devised with the help of the comments already gathered during Neighbourhood Planning Committee discussions, can also be collected and posted at the following locations during the consultation period:

Town Council Offices (Market Street); Hailsham Library (Western Road); Hailsham MI Club (Western Road); Seaforth Farm Surgery (Vicarage Field); Vicarage Field Surgery; Medical Centre (85 Battle Road); Quintin Medical Centre (Hawkswood Road); Dippy Doodahs (High Street); Chapter 12 Wine Bar (High Street); Hailsham Jewellers (High Street); Waitrose (Vicarage Field); Tesco (North Street).

Alternatively, questionnaires can be completed online and a link will be accessible from 4th June 2016 via the Neighbourhood Planning section of our website.

Town Clerk John Harrison encourages as many people as possible to take part in the Neighbourhood Planning process by completing the questionnaire. He said:

“Hailsham needs a Neighbourhood Development Plan which will summarise the views of the local community in terms of future development and required infrastructure. The creation of a Neighbourhood Plan offers residents a leading role in determining the nature of new development and ensuring that it complies with high standards of design, conservation and sustainability.”

“The questionnaire will help identify residents’ likes and dislikes about the Hailsham area and will be used to understand what the community opinion as a whole is.”

“All views gathered from the questionnaire will inform the draft Neighbourhood Plan and provide a blueprint for the future development of the Hailsham area. Therefore, it is important that residents take part in the consultation in order for us to obtain an accurate reflection of the consensus views of the local community.”
