Hailsham Town Council is holding an extraordinary meeting at the Hailsham East Community Centre in Vega Close on Tuesday 10th November from 7pm, at which town councillors will debate the Issues and Options that underpin Wealden District Council’s recently reviewed Local Plan on future housing developments in Hailsham.

It is proposed the new Wealden Local Plan will run from 2013—2037 and aims to provide 12,750 houses over this 24-year period, in addition to what is already expected. This equates to 580 dwellings per annum from 2015 to 2037 and will include some 2,300 houses on behalf of Wealden’s neighbouring authorities.

Hailsham Town Council has organised an extraordinary meeting which, like all Full Council and Committee meetings, are open to the public to attend as observers.

Residents are invited to address members during 15 minutes set aside for this purpose at the start of the meeting. If several residents attend who wish to address members of the Town Council or Committee the 15 minutes has to be shared between them.

“Local government needs local people,” said Town Clerk John Harrison. “The Town Council is determined to make Hailsham a great place to live, work and learn and residents can get involved by attending, making an enquiry or raising an issue relating to Town Council services or issues affecting the local community at any of our regular meetings.”

“If there is an issue you think is important or where you believe the Town Council can make improvements you may want to bring it to the attention of members, so please do consider coming along to our meetings.”

A full schedule of Committee meetings, in addition to bi-monthly meetings of Full Council, is available to view here. A copy of the agenda for these meetings is displayed on the notice board outside the Town Council offices, Vicarage Field and on this website.
