We've changed our name!

Residents in East Sussex Against Landraise now represents the combined village campaigns of Ripe and Chalvington, Laughton and East Hoathly and we actively support all the other No Landraise campaigns in the county. Follow us on Twitter.

The consultation on the preferred Minerals and Waste Strategy has now closed and you may think it has gone very quiet. In fact, so many people and organisations had a view that East Sussex County Council are now analysing around 3000 representations which will, no doubt, take them some time.

The council will now produce a co-ordinated response to all the representations including those for the Broomham Farm site (see picture right). Anyone who has sent in a representation will automatically be notified when the publication of this document takes place. Anyone who did not send in a representation but would like to receive notification of key stages of the preparation of the Core Strategy can register with the Council

In the meantime, the council's officers are undertaking "further technical work" which, amongst other things, will assess matters that have been drawn to the council's attention by the those responding to the consultation.

All this means that the timetable for further consultations and the decision making process will be very lengthy with anything futher unlikely to happen "before the summer".
