In documents submitted to Wealden District Council, Barton Willmore LLP – on behalf of Gleeson Strategic Land Limited and Rydon Homes Limited – is applying for outline planning permission for 200 new homes with 35 per cent of them being affordable.

A new road from Station Road for cars, pedestrians and cycles is proposed along with open spaces, sustainable urban drainage systems and associated landscaping.

A spokesperson said in the statement, “Hailsham is a suitable location for growth and the site is a sustainable location for development.

“Wealden council cannot demonstrate a five-year housing land supply and there is therefore in principle a clear and compelling need for housing delivery across the district.”
