PLANNING PARKING AND PROMOTION

Meetings, trainings, and webinars have been happening virtually every weekday during the last 6 months and your ward councillors have been busy leading, attending and listening in to many of them.

The introduction of recorded council meetings watched by many, live or later on YOU TUBE, has been welcomed by us all as well as many members of the public.

Planning committee changes to allow Ward Councillors to speak for 5 minutes as representatives of residents, either in opposition or in agreement to officers recommendations, have been used at each of the planning meetings with Councillors speaking on matters ranging from the proposed car park at Whatlington church, the unauthorised development at Netherfield and the proposed development behind Watch Oak house and Chain Lane.

Parking changes in Battle, as Councillor Field has reported, will commence on 29th September and your ward councillors will be pleased to listen to any comments (especially the positive ones) and use them when the review takes place in a years' time.

Promotion your ward councillors have been proactive in working with groups to Promote the cycling and walking strategy and are fighting for funding to improve cycleways and footpaths around the district. We have also been proactive in supporting local businesses to get grants to support them through the pandemic and Promoting a "Return to the High Street" with measures to Protect you, our residents. Working alongside the Chamber of Commerce we have Promoted and encouraged local businesses to obtain the "Good to Go" and "Covid safe" marks to protect our residents. We are also (at every opportunity) Promoting accessibility to the down platform at Battle Railway station east of the Marley Lane Level crossing.
