Information Statement for Pluckley Neighbourhood Plan

Pluckley Brickworks Site

The developers who secured outline planning permission to build 25 homes on the Brickworks site have advised the Parish Council today that they will be commencing work Monday 23 January. This will involve site clearance and cutting back along the frontage. To secure the site, they will be installing hoarding along the frontage and asking cars not to park there.

Increase in Incidents

There appears to be a spate of incidents recently and worryingly this includes residential houses and one business. Please be aware of your and your neighbours’ properties. Please check security lights and make sure doors and windows are locked at night or when you leave the house.  Please also look at a new facility called here.  It’s free to Pluckley residents and after only a few weeks we have E5d2ikH9over 70 members.
