About the Parish

As well as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) , Withyham Parish has some sites of specific scientific interest and is also a conservation area. 

Withyham Parish is a beautiful place in which to live characterised by distinctive brick, tile and weatherboard houses, oast houses, farmsteads, ancient woodland, patchworks of small fields and distinctive settlements housing strong communities. These include Lye Green, Friar’s Gate and Marden’s Hill. The remainder of the parish comprises farms including arable, dairy/beef and sheep. It is bordered by the open area of Ashdown Forest to the south and west.

Withyham Parish Council’s Parish Plan reflects the needs of residents and aims to ensure that the character of the community is maintained, whilst embracing changes in a manner that enhances or strengthens the quality of life for its residents. It outlines the key issues highlighted by the residents that continue to drive the work of the Council. These fall under the headings of Roads, Transport and Traffic; Housing; Recreation; Social and Community; Environment and Commercial development. Copies can be obtained by contacting the Clerk.
