Land at the bottom of Hunters Way, Uckfield, will not be considered for homes in the latest plan

Land rejected for Uckfield housing

Small pieces of green space all over Uckfield have again been rejected as potential housing land.

The town council is telling Wealden District Council that it does not wish the following areas to be considered for future housing.

  • Bellbrook Open Space
  • Land below Bridge Farm Wood
  • Land at the bottom of Hunters Way
  • Rocks Park Flats
  • Land at Oaklea Way
  • Land at Harlands Farm, Mallard Drive
  • Land at Hempstead Fields, off Barnet Way

Wealden District Council (WDC) is currently undertaking a complete refresh of its Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) process, previously known as SHLAA.

The purpose of the original SHLAA was to identify sites with possible housing potential which might be suitable for six or more dwellings across the whole of the district, and to assess whether these may become available for development over the next 20 years.

Under the refresh, WDC is looking at all the land in its database and checking on land that has previously been withdrawn from the process.

It has asked if the Uckfield Town Council sites (listed above) should remain withdrawn or, alternatively, which ones should remain in the assessment for future consideration.

Councillors decided all the land should remain withdrawn and not considered for future housing.

 What is the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment?
