HERSTMONCEUX ACTION GROUP
Banner put up in support of the protest by the Wealden Action Group, on the North facing garden fencing of the Old Rectory. The owners of the Rectory building are potentially one of the most affected by application: WD/2014/2663/MAO, now WD/2015/0090/MAO. Having enjoyed this view for nearly 30 years, why should they not continue to do so. https://www.facebook.com/Herstmonceuxactiongroup
HERSTMONCEUX ACTION GROUP
There has never been an action group representing the interests of so many residents in this peaceful Sussex backwater. To date, planning battles have been contained, such that local people were content to let close neighbours object to smaller residential developments.
This all changed when a former estate agent was seen surveying Lime Cross and speaking to neighbours about his intention (or the intention of family members) to apply for planning consent for upwards of 70 houses, where for many years Wealden District Council and the Parish Council have been saying there should be no development.
If you want to see some splendid video footage showing how bad the traffic is at the proposed entrance onto the A271, please visit that HX Action Group's Facebook webpage by clicking on the poster above:
WD/2014/2663/MAO - GLEESON DEVELOPMENTS LTD
This application is not only contrary to the Local Plan, but is considered by many to be downright dangerous.
Proposed entrance to Lime Cross for access to 70 new houses. The A271 is already a busy road. What is not clear from this plan is that the entrance shown in red is just a few yards away from a sign telling people to slow down. That sign is half way up a hill, that has been the site of accidents on the other face. You can imagine the carnage with family vehicles trying to exit from this entrance, which is very narrow. There is no real visibility splay. Vehicles traveling west into the village from Hastings, will be unable to see cars trying to get to school to pick up their children because of the hedge that is not in the applicant's ownership. It is even worse with vehicles heading east out of the village, now coming down a hill - and once again the angle prevents any real advance warning, with just the nose of a car protruding - only visible at the last moment.
applicant's agents visit the site in Herstmonceux, parking in Church Road:
