Land South of Four Elms Road Development

As you may be aware, there are plans for 443 new homes on the Land South of Four Elms Road which will offer both open market and affordable housing. The development will include land for a new school, publicly accessible facilities, provision of land for a new youth centre, provision of land for a new scout hut, funding for the construction of a new station car park and provision of public open space.

This is at the pre-application enquiry stage and there will be a public information meeting on Monday 24th June at Rickards Hall, High Street, Edenbridge between 18:00 and 21:00.  This will provide an opportunity to view the proposals in person and speak to a member of the team should you have any questions.  Deadline for comments is 8th July. Formal consultation will follow thereafter.

The Local Housing Needs Survey is now open

RACE & Sevenoaks District Council are working with Hever Parish Council to undertake a housing needs survey in the parish. The survey aims to gauge the need for affordable housing across all age groups. We’re also exploring if older homeowners need to downsize or require more suitable housing. Your input shapes housing solutions for everyone. Let’s ensure affordability for all stages of life!

All households in the Parish should have received a postcard about this.

You can use this link to complete the survey online

You can get a paper version of the survey from the Parish Clerk, Rachael Turner, by calling 07784 912645 or emailing: – a pre-paid envelope will be included to enable you to return your completed survey.
