“PRESS RELEASE”

With reference to the mail shot received by a number of residents from Gladman Developments Ltd, the Parish Council were completely unaware of this speculative proposal until advised by residents and to date have still not been approached directly by this company. There has been no formal application submitted, and therefore know nothing further than that contained within the leaflet. Medstead and Four Marks have an adopted Neighbourhood Plan, and have already exceeded their allocations target. The site is outside the Settlement Policy Boundary, therefore contrary to Policy CP19 in EHDC’s Local Plan, and EHDC currently have a robust and published 5 year housing land supply. Should an application be submitted, then the Parish Council would discuss this at a Full Council meeting to which all members of the public would be welcome. Details of any such meeting will be posted both on the website, parish notice boards and on social media.
