Peasmarsh Neighbourhood Development Plan 2021-39

Building the Plan

Creating an NDP is a relatively long process, not least because of the built-in procedures to ensure inclusivity and compliance. We have set a target of being ready to hold the referendum at the end of 2022.

There are a series of key activities which will help you understand the process :

Early March 2021 : Peasmarsh PC adopts the need for an NDP and lobbies Rother DC for 'Neighbourhood' status
Peasmarsh PC adopted the need for an NDP on March 2nd
March to June 2021 : Recruitment, Research and Preparation
This work is now well advanced
Mid-June June 2021 : First Public Survey issued
Late June 2021 : Rother DC adopts the Peasmarsh 'Neighbourhood Area'
Rother PC adopted the Neighbourhood Area on March 25th - much sooner than expected
Early July 2021 : First Drop-in Consultation and Workshop
This event will take place over the weekend of July 3 and 4
July to September 2021 : Incorporation of feedback from Consultation and Workshop
Late September 2021 : Call for possible development sites
October 2021 to March 2022 : Review of sites and development of NDP
Late March 2022 : Second Consultation and Workshop
July 2022 : Draft NDP available for comment
July to September 2022 : Incorporation of comments and finalisation of NDP
September 2022 : Submission of NDP to external examiner and Rother
Early January 2023 : Public Referendum
