    Keeping the community informed about the threat of over-development in East Hoathly
    Of course the internet is wonderful for getting information out to the ‘Village Concerns’ action group: whether by email, a village blog, facebook or other forms of social media.
    But not everyone has or wants to use social media; and some might want to join and support the action group, but cannot because they have no email address.
    The recent survey conducted by the Parish Council (PC) was a great way of taking on board people’s concerns and preferences regarding new housing in the village. But doing this required postage and collection boxes. This was quite a commitment and money had to be spent. I do hope the PC uses the results as the starting point for a Neighbourhood Plan.
    Ways of improving communication, in addition to social media, include using notice-boards and posters in people’s windows; and talking to neighbours.
    Perhaps you have more ideas or could provide a notice-board or window?
