Hook and Son Dairy Farm Threatened by Housing Development


Planning application reference number WD/2023/1684/MAO

A planning application to build 180 homes by Fernham Homes on ‘Land east of Battle Road.’ IN FACT, THE LAND HAS ALWAYS BEEN PART OF LONGLEYS FARM

Please write to the Wealden District Council Case Officer, Mrs C Turner to OBJECT to the proposed development,

You can SEND AN EMAIL to for the attention of Mrs C Turner, or you can click on the ‘comment on this application’ button on the details page of the planning application. The button will be shown only during the consultation period during which comments can be made.

Go to Wealden District Council’s website to see what is being proposed. Essentially, we will lose 40 acres of grazing land that we rent from the landowner. This is the best land on the farm. Without this land we would have to reduce our herd size and Hook and Son will no longer be viable. WE WOULD HAVE TO PACK UP MILKING OUR COWS AND PRODUCING RAW MILK.

Please feel free to use the following reasons for objection:

· The 40 acres of grazing land is integral to the farm’s viability.

· Farms should not be fragmented.

· Farmland producing food for local people should not be fragmented and lost but protected from development.

· How would statutory biodiversity gain be achieved on existing organic farmland with the biodiversity that already provides?

· The food our farm produces are important to you for different reasons (raw dairy, organic).

· Hook and Son are the main raw milk producer in the UK.

· Hook and Son employ 20 full time and 6 part time people with those jobs at stake.

· It is the last dairy farm in Hailsham.

· It organically farms land on the Pevensey Levels Site of Special Scientific Interest.

· It is an award-winning farm for its produce and featured in the film The Moo Man which was showcased by the United Nations in 2014 in the UN ‘Year of the Family Farm.’ As well as featuring at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

Furthermore, it is disgraceful that Hailsham Town Council have not objected to this application.

Only residents and our customers are fighting this!
