Why not start with some bunting, flags or colouring sheets for all the family?

Why not take 2 minutes at 11am on Saturday 15th August 2020 to reflect on the sacrifices of so many?

Air Quality Matters

After years of Hawkhurst Parish Council lobbying Tunbridge Wells Borough Council on air pollution in Hawkhurst, they  have at last identified an issue with air quality in Hawkhurst.

They have set up a dedicated web page for Hawkhurst

This includes Frequently Asked Questions

Hawkhurst Parish Council will continue to push for answers and improvement in air quality, you will soon be consulted by TWBC on an air quality action plan to improve air quality in Hawkhurst. It is important that you take part and make your voice heard.


Hawkhurst Golf Club – planning update

Clare Escombe, chairman of Hawkhurst Parish Council, commented: “I am delighted that Natural England has concluded that the proposal to build of Hawkhurst Golf Course would have a major adverse impact on the purposes of designation of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It must be time for the landowner and developer to stop this ill-thought through scheme and agree a scheme with local people to benefit the village and save the environment. The Parish Council has also applied for the site to be designated a community asset to afford greater protection for villagers use of site.”
