We have applied to Wealden District Council for planning consent to set up our second cluster of affordable smallholdings. Our first cluster, Greenham Reach was established in 2014.
As at Greenham Reach, we are seeking permission for three affordable residential smallholdings for new entrants to ecological agriculture. In planning that is: a change of use to site three temporary dwellings, permission to construct a timber barn and area of hard-standing, and changes to the road access from the field. We are applying for a five-year temporary planning consent.
We'd be extremely grateful if you would consider writing in support of our application. How this can be done is set out on the Letters of Support page.
