Following approval by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council’s Cabinet the LNDP will be put to a referendum on Thursday September 16th 2021.
Any registered eligible voter in the Parish is entitle to vote and the question posed on the ballot paper will be “Do you want Tunbridge Wells Borough Council to use the Lamberhurst Neighbourhood Development Plan to help decide planning applications in the Lamberhurst Neighbourhood Area”
The LNDP was written with the help and input from a broad cross section of the Parish community with the assistance of professional planning advisors. A detailed residents survey was undertaken in the summer of 2018 followed by a series of public workshops in the autumn to scope a Parish Vision and the polices to guide appropriate development in the Parish.
Full Details of the plan can be found HERE.
On the 3rd of July at 6pm the world premiere of the locally produced video potential blockbuster 'Lamberhurst in Lockdown' will take place in the Memorial Hall.
The video includes performances by local actors acting, singers singing and 'musicians' doing versions of the classic 'Lean on Me' by Bill Withers. Ending with St Mary's School, joining with elements of St Mary's Church choir and Red, Green and Blue, AKA Brian and Megan, doing it right.
Lamberhurst in Lockdown is delivered with tongue firmly in cheek as it introduces us to the global dance phenomenon that is the Lamberhurst Lambada, The Two Doctors, local supergroup, Mind, Body and Soul and a 157 miles per hour investment vehicle.

Due to the Medical Emergency it is over 2 years since we last met for an Annual Parish Meeting and I felt it important to at least give you a written report on some of the Parish Council`s activities during this period.
In May the Parish Council held its first Public meeting for over a year. In the meantime we had been `meeting` by Zoom which, once we had got used to it, proved very effective. Indeed , I expect in the future many of our sub-group meetings will continue to be held in that way especially when they are scheduled for a dark, wet, and cold winter`s evening !
