Wealden District Council is preparing a new Local Plan which may be ready in draft form in Spring 2022. In view of Wealden's latest housing targets and central government pressure the number of new homes allocated for development in Maresfield Parish is very likely to be considerably in excess of the 50 allocated in the 2013 Core Strategy. Because of the restrictions imposed by the Ashdown Forest new development is unlikely to be allowed in Fairwarp or in most of Nutley.
This Survey will be used to inform our new Neighbourhood Development Plan being prepared by the Parish Council. If approved this Plan will be the primary planning document for the Parish until at least 2032 so your views will carry real weight.
We need your input and support please.  It should only take 12 minutes of your time.
