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.”
