URGENT NOTICE PLEASE RESPOND

(published by: Cooksbridge Station partnership)

20/01/2015

On the 30th January 2015 Southern railway will be closing their Dec 2015 timetable consultation.

This means that all the new services the Cooksbridge Station Partnership has been fighting for on your behalf will be up for consideration.

On the 29th January the partnership will be presenting to Southern railway and Norman Baker MP (who is also fighting our cause) a large and informative document asking for more services and the reasons why.

Please help and add your voice, just a short note asking for more trains to stop at our station and the reason why it will benefit you, your children, work or pleasure.

They all count in this last and final campaign.

Please send your response direct to GTR Southern by email or FREEPOST

gtrtimetableconsultation@gtrailway.com

GTR Dec 2015 Consultation, FREEPOST LON 15973, Croydon, CR0 1ZY

This is our last chance to get any more trains to stop for the next 5 years. So far we have managed to get 2 extra trains to stop at our station, now we want the service to stop hourly and 7 days a week.

Please e.mail a copy of your response to kmfroude@gmail.com

We will then add it to the comprehensive response to be sent by the Station Partnership.

Can we have a copy by 20th January please.

THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO HAVE YOUR SAY FOR A BETTER TRAIN SERVICE

Neighbourhood Plan - an update

(published by: The Neighbourhood Plan)

28/10/2014

HAMSEY PARISH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN 2114-2030

I am pleased to be able to report that during the summer the writing team have made significant progress in creating a draft Neighbourhood Plan for Hamsey Parish.

The draft plan has been pulled together to take into account feedback from residents and local businesses, evidence both historic and current, with input also from outside bodies including Lewes District Council (LDC), Action in rural Sussex and independent consultants from Planning Aid.

RESIDENTS CONSULTATION

The next major step in the process is a six week consultation phase when all residents of Hamsey and other stakeholders can look at the draft plan and make comment.

The plan may be viewed on line - see documents.

Printed copies are available to borrow from any parish councillor, Hamsey school, Offham garage or the Rainbow.

You can make comments on the plan by clicking on the link below or contact clerk@hamsey.net for a printed survey form.

We are holding a open morning on SATURDAY THE 29TH of NOVEMBER between 10am and 1pm which is an opportunity for you to meet members of the team and give any comment on the draft plan.

This consultation phase for residents will last for six weeks and any comments will either be used to make changes to the plan or if not, they will be recorded and a reason for not incorporating them given.

WIDER PUBLIC CONSULTATION

When the final draft is in place then in will go to a wider public consultation which LDC will organise.

We can’t predict what if any, issues might be raised at this point with a need to be addressed.

but once this has happened we could be looking at late spring 2015 to go to referendum .

THE REFERENDUM

Our plan will include a number of polices covering future use of land in the parish, which will guide how any future development in the parish is approached by the local planning authority (LDC).

It is these police which you will be able to vote upon at the referendum.

LOCAL PROJECTS

We have also identified (through resident’s feedback) local projects which would benefit Hamsey., These also form part of the local plan and as such are not voted on, however the Steering Group decided to include these within the overall plan for a more holistic view.

I look forward to giving you a further update in the Winter edition.
