New homes in Lower Willingdon

04 April 2011



When is the decision due the proposed plan for 540 homes in Lower Willingdon? How can I follow updates on this? 

Mr John Conway.


Dear Mr Conway,

Thank you for your question. I assume you are referring to the planning application at Honey Farm, Polegate. As you probably know this application is subject to appeal by the developer following the refusal of permission by Wealden. 

I have been trying to get a date for the result of that Planning Inquiry and was informed yesterday the Secretary of State's appeal decision is expected to be issued by 13 June 2011. The appeal decision will be posted on the Inspectorate's Planning Portal Appeal Page (external link).

Wealden District Council will also publish a press release when the decision is known. I trust this gives you the information you require but please contact me again if I can help further. 

Bob Standley.
