Planning Support Group (WGOD)

March 2023 - Chalvington with Ripe PC submit a response to the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: reforms to national planning policy

Working with WGOD (see below), the parish council has submitted a response to the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill. The response is listed below.



WGOD was set up with the aim of getting the Government to scrap the “standard method” which is the cause of the unrealistic and damaging housing targets in our area. There is work going on behind the scenes, meeting with MPs, Wealden District Councillors, drafting letters, lobbying etc. We are delighted that 41 out of 42 parish/town councils of Wealden have signed up to this group.

A letter sent to all 42 local councils in the Wealden District is attached below.
