At the Chamber Breakfast Club on Tuesday 3 December we were pleased to have as our guest speaker Chamber Member, Chair of Steering Group and Town Councillor Cathy Gallagher.
Cathy Gallagher has been the Chair of Steering Group since its conception to help shape the new Peacehaven and Telscombe Neighbourhood Plan.
In 2011 the Localism Act reformed the planning system to enable local people more say in determining how their local areas are developed. This has enabled local groups to work with Town Councils to set out a vision for the places they live, study and work.
This can include identifying where you think new homes, shops, leisure facilities or employment opportunities are to be built and what these buildings should look like within the local area.
