Forthcoming Parish Newsletter:

The council in conjunction with Rotherfield St Martin are preparing the Autumn Parish Newsletter which is circulated to all houses in the Parish.  Please look out for your copy arriving early in November with an update of the Council’s work throughout the year and what it aims to do looking forward.

Parking in Disabled Bays:

We have received reports from parishioners that the Disabled Parking Bays, particularly those at the Rotherfield Village Hall Car Park, are being used by vehicles with no Blue Badge showing.  We ask for your co-operation in ensuring these parking places are only used if you a valid Blue Badge for parking in the bay.  Thank you.

SID Statistics – B2100 Rotherfield Hill:

Following an accident on Rotherfield Hill, our Speed Indication Device was deployed near the site last month in the National Speed Limit area to gather information on the speed of the traffic.  As a result, it would not have been flashing at you as you passed but did record data for traffic heading down the hill towards Crowborough and up the hill towards Rotherfield:

In both directions the majority of vehicles appear to be adhering to the national speed limit.  However, we ask residents to be aware of the several driveways off this stretch of Rotherfield Hill.

Preparations for the Christmas Lights:

Preparations are well underway for the installation of Christmas lights across the Parish.  More information will be provided in next month’s Parish Magazine and on social media nearer the switch on date.

Planning Consultation:

The Parish Council has been asked to consult on the Government’s proposals for new Planning regulations “Planning for the Future” to allow new developments to be approved more easily.  Anybody is permitted to comment and further information can be found here:
