HDCC Survey and Q&A meeting


Hadlow Down Community Centre (HDCC) would like to thank all respondents that have taken the time to complete our survey since the consultation period opened on 3rd July.

If you haven’t yet completed it, there is still plenty of time to give your views.

HDCC is proposing to build a new Village Hall and Sports Pavilion at the Playing Field. The new building will include a much larger main hall, more adequate storage spaces, a meeting room and modern kitchen facilities. Much needed changing facilities, showers, storage, club room and a bar are also planned. There will be parking for 43 cars, including 5 spaces for disabled users, 10 bicycle parking spaces and 20% of the car parking spaces will be fitted with electric charging points.


Hadlow Down residents, along with Village Hall and Pavilion users, are invited to complete an on-line survey here

If you would prefer to complete a paper copy of the survey please email Geoff Gregory geoff.gregory@outlook.com or call 07936 678891
Delivery and collection will then be arranged. A pre-paid return envelope can be provided, if you would prefer to remain anonymous.

Comments will be published anonymously with the report.

Results will be independently verified and reported to parishioners in the Village Magazine, on the Village Website and on the HDCC website.

How can I give my views?

The consultation period will begin on the 3rd July and will run for a period of three weeks, closing on 24th July.

Parishioners and current user groups from both the Village Hall and Sports Pavilion are invited to respond. You can find out more about the project either on our website www.newvillagehall.co.uk  or in our latest newsletter here

Join us at our Q & A meeting

There will be a public meeting to be held in the Village Hall on Thursday 20th July (7.30 pm) which we hope will achieve several things:-

  • After the AGM held in February and the feedback we received, we would like to invite parishioners to a public meeting. HDCC would like to provide an opportunity for those concerned about the project to share their thoughts and ask any questions they may have. We ask that questions be submitted in advance  in order that we can respond fully and in detail.
  • Many of you have been wondering if the project is still alive and the meeting will enable us to reassure local people that we are attempting to move forward;
  • If we can attract new residents to the parish to attend the meeting, they will be made aware of the project and what we hope to achieve – who knows, they may want to get involved!!
  • It will give us an opportunity to encourage all those present to complete the online survey so that we get a high response level.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Q & A session, please send your questions to Mandy Chapman

mandy.chapman45@googlemail.com to arrive by 18th July

The survey remains open until 24th July 2023
