Hawkhurst Parish Council Chairman Councillor Clare Escombe, said:
“The Hawkhurst Village Magazine is independent from Hawkhurst Parish Council and as stated on page 22 of the magazine “The views expressed in this magazine do not reflect the views of Hawkhurst Parish Council”
The editor of the magazine is independent from the Parish Council.
To clarify, the role of a Parish Council in any planning application is to act as a formal consultee to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, the planning authority.
The Parish Council has to consider planning matters and make an informed decision on whether to support or object to the planning application.
The Hawkhurst Golf Club planning application is to be considered at the Hawkhurst Parish Council meeting on Monday 9th September 2019, 8:45pm in St Laurence Church and the formal position of the Council will be decided then.”
