Feria Urbanism has been appointed by Ticehurst Parish Council to assist them in the preparation of a neighbourhood plan.

The neighbourhood planning process is now well under way with several rounds of consultation now completed. If you could not take part, do not worry... there will more opportunities coming up. The parish council are very grateful to the 200 approx. people who came to the Ticehurst, Flimwell and Stonegate visioning sessions in January 2016. The Feria Urbanism team now has lots of information to process but they need more.


What are the priorities for the future?

  • What do you want the parish of Ticehurst to look and feel like in the in the next 10 – 15 years?

Two-Day Design Forum

The Feria Urbanism team ran a successful 48 hour design session in Ticehurst on 9th and 10th March 2016. At the design forum drop-in attendance was welcome as well longer participation from those that could the spare the time. We particularly welcomed input from young people that attend Ticehurst Primary School. Groups, individuals and businesses put together a series of short statements about how they would like to see the future and these were presented on the first day of the design forum. These can be downloaded via the links on the right hand side of this page.


There was a public meeting open to everybody in the parish at 7.30pm on Thursday 10th March 2016 to conclude the design forum. The slideshow from this event can also be downloaded (in four parts) via the links on the right hand side of this page.
