The Community Centre Project – Update

The planning application, which included a Business Plan, was submitted to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council in the first half of January and we now await their decision.  The application is available for inspection at the Parish Office.

The planning application for the access to Wilkes Field from the Regal car park (more usually referred to as the Co-op car park) has also been submitted.  There are discussions on the access which involve the Co-op, TWBC, and the developer, and agreement is urgently being sought from all parties.

Fund raising will start once the planning application has been approved.

Below are some of the images that form part of the planning application:





You can access the entire application on the Tunbridge Wells Borough Council website under reference 15/500318. The Business Plan which accompanied the planning application is available to view at the Cranbrook & Sissinghurst Parish Council Office, The Old Fire Station, Stone Street, Cranbrook.
