The two plans posted around the village are not alternatives.

Housing development proposals in East Hoathly are being led by Developers rather than being considered within the context of a strategic plan that carefully evaluates local needs and the capacity of the infrastructure.

Unlike neighbouring authorities, WDC is allowing this to happen. WDC will collect the significant Government ’New Homes Bonuses’ (Double Council Tax for 6 years on every house built).

They set a dangerous precedent and encourage further applications for large, developments in our village and rural areas beyond; effectively a Developers’ ‘free for all’ with no strategic framework.
