Building Application News

 Wealden MP Nus Ghani has responded to pressure from Crowborough and is referring Wealden District Council’s Mead House planning decision to James Brokenshire the new Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

He has the power to take the decision out of Wealden’s hands and to ask a local government planning inspector to rule on the site.

This action is also supported by Crowborough’s two County Councillors, Cllr Richard Stogdon and Cllr Sylvia Tidy. 

 We have just learned that Nus Ghani MP is holding a ‘surgery’ in Crowborough on 22ndJune. If you can, please make an appointment to see her face-to-face so that she is left in no doubt about how angry people feel about the proposed development of 68 flats and houses, the loss of Mead House Car Park and the lack of a buffer zone between the proposed development and our Community Centre. 
Here is the link to her website with details of how you can make an appointment.
