This event went well, many thanks to our volunteers, local Councillors and St Richards Church for the refreshments afterwards.  Lots of plastic drinks bottles, crisp wrappers, cans and other bits of rubbish were cleared.

Blocked drains and potholes were also reported.



















Alderbrook Planning Application for a car park - see http://www.plan


Wealden District Council are making the appliction for a "temporary" car park for 6 cars so access to the SANGS (Suitable Alternative Green Space) can be made.  

When approval was discussed for the new 160 home site at Walshes Farm,  Wealden District Council planning meeting stated:
"The SANGS would be accessed through the development"  



Planning Application for Access via Brooklands Avenue into the area below the Football pitch is:

WD/2015/2580/F - Comment on this application until 18th February

See Gleeson Development Page for previous Housing Application

**Planning Application Refused**



Community & Environmental Budget (C&EB) SCRAPPED for 2016/17 - Please make your views know to your Elected Councillor about this Community Enhancing Budget that was funded from the Housing Rent Account.


Area Reps can be found listed in the blue banner on the left hand side of this page.  These are all local people so please feel free to approach them should you have any issues.


We hold 6 meetings per year plus 4 Walkabouts to check on the estate with Housing Officers, local Councillors and our PCSO.

You would be well supported by a constructive committee who like to get things done. The reason we only have 6 meetings per year now is because the area is nice and peaceful with few problems - if you feel different then please feel free to come along to our next meeting or get in touch using the details shown at the top of this page.

No Cold Calling Zone

Signs have now been erected and an "Official" launch was on Tuesday 19th March 2013

By signing up to the scheme residents on the estate are deterring univited callers.


 Volunteers Always Needed!

We need residents whether they be private, council or Housing Association tenants to help us do more. So much has been achieved in a short period of time but we can do more to improve quality the of life here in the Alderbrook area - if you want to be part of it please do contact us.

Many of us work full-time so help is always gratefully received.

There are many different topics that need residents involvement - our group only have 6 meetings a year but we also attend meetings for WRAG (Wealden Residents Action Group) who "oversee" all the community groups with issues that affect us all; the Community & Environmental Budget meetings where funding is allocation (see Noticeboards below) as well as getting involved in all the changes such as Council Tax, Benefits and the new Tenancies.

If you don't get involved or give us your input you have no reason to complain - we can and do influence issues but you need to get involved and have your say if not for yourself then for your children or relatives.

Thank you to the volunteers who have offered their services so far - more always welcome!



Please keep an eye on these for up to date information - if you have a local event you would like to advertise please contact Jo - 0771 261 1209
