1 Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Neighbourhood Plan – Proposed Allocation of Levy Policy CIL1 - Financial support to existing community facilities Specific requests have already been received from the Village Hall and St Mary the Virgin church, but other facilities may also have funding problems. Policy CIL2 - Provision of high speed broadband across Hartfield parish If not delivered by the current East Sussex County Council project. Policy CIL3 - Promotion of local business Through a Business Directory or Business Association Policy CIL4 – Other community benefits Once provision has been made for each of the above needs, any additional funds may be used for investment in new or improved facilities or one off grants or ongoing support to recognised local groups, clubs or organisations for the benefit of the residents of Hartfield parish. Policy CIL5 – Administration Funds generated by the Community Infrastructure Levy will be administered (and separately accounted for) by Hartfield Parish Council. Do you support each of the above policies? Yes or No

2 Business and Employment Policies No new business development sites will be required but the following business and employment policies are proposed to be included in the Neighbourhood Plan. Policy BE1 - "Evolutionary and organic growth" and "Vitality" Development policies based on "steady state" aren't realistic or sustainable. Modest growth is more desirable than a slow decline. Our local businesses should be supported. Premises need to adapt as a business grows or changes in response to changing markets or working practices. Depending on requirements, this might include enlargement or new uses of existing premises, or relocation to more suitable premises. A process of organic or evolutionary growth would also maintain the current dispersed nature of businesses in a variety of locations across the parish. For small businesses, organic change may include businesses closing down (e.g. on retirement) so it is recognised that some buildings may no longer be required for their original business purpose. Policy BE2- Sustainable tourism Overall the parish benefits from tourism, both directly in trade for our hotel, B&Bs, holiday lets and pubs, and indirectly from the additional trade to other businesses that help to ensure their viability. We support the local initiatives (e.g. one involving Wealdlink, our local community transport provider) towards sustainable tourism, using public transport rather than private cars, encouraging activities that are appropriate for our rural setting, while minimising the impact on those who live here. Policy BE3 - "Brown field" development for business It is considered that there are sufficient number of "brown field" sites in the parish (particularly in the light of Government policies relating to reuse or redevelopment of former agricultural buildings) to enable business needs to be met on sites with existing buildings (by re-use, conversion or redevelopment) rather than using "green field" sites. We support Local Plan policies that encourage larger businesses requiring the facilities of an industrial park to relocate to a nearby town. Policy BE4 - Protection of the Ashdown Forest Interpretation of the 7km Special Protection Area surrounding Ashdown Forest must support sustainable development necessary to ensure the vitality of our community. The closure of MK Airlines at Landhurst has led to a significant reduction in vehicle movements that should be taken into account in assessing the net effect of any Neighbourhood Plan proposals. Do you support each of the above policies? Yes or No

3 Design Policy - New Development Policy D1 – Design and "Green" development D1(a) New development affecting the Hartfield Conservation Area should use traditional design and materials. D1(b)We are open to contemporary designs with environment- friendly features in other parts of the parish. Do you support each part of the above policy? Yes or No

4 Community Facilities April 2014 questionnaire responses to Community Facilities Survey Demonstrated strong support for existing facilities Did not demonstrate a majority in favour of providing a site or sites for any new facilities. A majority wished to see existing facilities maintained or improved Several community organisations identified shortfalls in funding Proposals Policy CF1 No site allocation for Community Facilities No sites will be allocated for new community facilities within the context of the Neighbourhood Plan See also: Policy CIL1 - Financial support to existing community facilities Policy CIL4 – Other community benefits Do you support the above policy CF1? Yes or No

5 Protection of the Hartfield Conservation Area Policy CA1 – Boundary of the Hartfield Conservation Area The boundaries of the Hartfield Conservation Area shall remain unchanged from those originally published in the Wealden District Council Conservation Area statement. Policy CA2 – Protection of the Hartfield Conservation Area When considering any planning matter due weight should be given to the protection of the features and characteristics of the Hartfield Conservation Area. Do you support each of the above policies? Yes or No

6 Affordable Housing – The Issue and Proposed Policy Affordable Housing for Shared Ownership 201 households completed the housing needs survey carried out for us by Action in Rural Sussex 61.1% indicated that they would be in favour of one or more small developments of affordable housing for local people if there was a proven need. 18 respondents identified a need for affordable housing This data demonstrates that there is still an unmet need for affordable housing. In Hartfield parish there is current provision of affordable housing for rent: Local authority housing at Castlefield and Mottefield Housing association properties at Old Crown Farm and Station Cottages Almshouses at Newbridge and Holtye Policy AF1: Affordable Housing for Shared Ownership The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group proposes that additional affordable housing should be provided for local people on a “shared ownership” basis, i.e. part owned and part rented, to meet the needs of those who have insufficient capital and/or insufficient earnings to borrow the money to buy a house on the open market. Do you support this policy? Yes or No

7 Additional Housing Development – The Issue Responses to the housing needs survey 30 respondents identified a need for open market housing Given that a very high percentage of current homes have 3 bedrooms or above, the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group interprets the data as demonstrating that Hartfield Parish has a need for more smaller properties (e.g. for starter homes, for those trading down and for “independent living” retirement) for purchase or rental on the open market. Do you support the principal of policy changes to provide smaller houses for purchase or rental? Yes or No

8 Additional Housing Development – Policy Options It is proposed that some or all of the following policy approaches should be adopted to assist in meeting the need for additional small houses in the parish Policy HD1: Use of Existing Residential Accommodation We will allow subdivision of existing residential properties (including the removal of planning conditions requiring the use of existing annexe accommodation to be “ancillary to occupation of the main dwelling”) to provide smaller units for rental or purchase. Policy HD2: Conversion of Agricultural Buildings The provisions of Class MB of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 will apply within Hartfield parish, to permit change of use of agricultural buildings to residential use (to create up to 3 new dwellings of no larger than 150m² per farm). Policy HD3: Additional Sites for Small Houses HD3 (a) Suitable sites within the parish of Hartfield should be allocated for sustainable small scale development of smaller homes for purchase or rental on the open market, using brownfield land, “infill sites” or land close to existing settlements. HD3 (b) Each new development site should be smaller in scale than the housing developments at Old Crown Farm and the former Coalyard. HD3 (c) Where feasible, any new development should adopt a “pepper potting” approach – with affordable housing, starter homes, bungalows and houses for those “trading down” to be mixed and scattered in suitable sites around the parish. Do you support each of the above policies? Yes or No
