From Sebastian Anstruther, Barlavington Estates, who has asked the Parish Council to share this information with parishioners and residents.
Barlavington Estate has been working on a Whole Estate Plan for the past 12 months and they would like to share some of their thinking with local residents. Asking for any feedback that residents might want to offer prior to producing the plan for review and consideration by the National Park Authority.
In a world without Covid-19 they would have set up an exhibition in a local village hall and invited residents of Coldwaltham to attend. Clearly that is not going to be possible so instead they have arranged to post this information online. The information is being hosted by their consultants, Rural Solutions, on a private part of their website. Barlavington Estate plan for the information (and associated feedback form) to be available for a six-week period, starting from 11th January.
To access the information please use the url https://ruralsolutions.co.uk/barlavington-estate/
You will be able to view a range of information about the Estate, their work, and the ideas they hope to include in the Whole Estate Plan. Residents will also be able to let Barlavington Estate have comments via the feedback form.
Once this period of online engagement is complete, they will then move towards completing our Whole Estate Plan and submitting it to the South Downs National Park Authority for their review and, all being well, endorsement.
You can find out more about that process via the South Downs National Park website here.
