September- December 2017
Over the past few months we have been collating feedback from consultations and exhibitions and beginning to assemble the mini mountain of documentation required for us to proceed to the next stage. We now have a 'Consultation Process' page on the website where we will add all relevant documents and we have started to design and create the first draft of our Neighbourhood Plan. For regular updates please continue to attend the monthly Steering Group meetings or to check the Steering Group Page of this website where you will always be able to find the most recent summaries of these meetings.

October 2016 (2)​
On October 1st there were displays and presentations on the results of the Public Survey. A summary and a full report of the results can be accessed from the Home Page.  

29th October was a public discussion to finalise the 'Aims and Objectives of the Neighbourhood Plan'. This important document (with discussion ​notes) can be downloaded here: 


Based on the comments collected at the second meeting, held in February 2016, two proposals for the vision statement of our neighbourhood plan were put forward:

1. Our Vision for Crowhurst is to maintain its rural character by protecting the countryside and environment around its boundaries, promoting community spirit and enhancing infrastructure, facilities and services for residents of all ages.

2. Our Vision for Crowhurst in the future is that the Parish will continue to thrive and provide for the needs of its residents by:
Protecting the rural character and natural environment of the Parish that makes it such an enjoyable place to live;
Enhancing the provision of essential rural services and infrastructure to enable residents to live and work in the community and beyond;
Improving community facilities for all ages;
Ensuring new developments are sustainable and minimise adverse environmental effects and road traffic impact.

Crowhurst Neighbourhood Plan members at the meeting on 24th March showed a preference for the wording in the first Vision. In the village 
survey, 98% of respondents agreed. Therefore, the first vision wording was finalised and approved for use. 

​Please get involved by coming to the next meeting. You can contribute, raise concerns or just listen and learn more about what we are doing and the progress of Crowhurst's Neighbourhood Plan.

There are several task groups in which Crowhurst resident volunteers work on issues like communications, land use, heritage and the environment  These groups will make a huge contribution to the final Neighbourhood Plan document.
