Calling on public to have their say

Firstly, thank you for your continuing excellent coverage of Uckfield planning and development stories.

Your cover story said: “Two stories hit the Wealden headlines this week which underline local people’s belief that they are not listened to.”

I’m a volunteer with the Uckfield Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group and we are definitely listening. Anyone can join in and help us create a neighbourhood plan that will shape how changes to our town are made.

So, Uckfield people, please come to our event in Uckfield Civic Centre tomorrow (March 7). A planning expert will talk about neighbourhood planning from 11am. Then from noon to 3pm, we are hoping that the real experts, that’s you, will drop in and put your ideas and knowledge on maps.
