Environment Committee

The Environment Committee’s Objectives are to

  1. ensure as far as is practicable that the town provides an attractive environment for those living and working in it and for visitors to it.
  2. provide the best practicable services to those dependant on the Council in respect of the allotments and cemetery
  3. develop and regularly review a 3 year strategic plan for the estate and, in particular, a maintenance regime to ensure that the estate is kept in a good and safe state of repair;

The Committee has responsibility for the town’s allotments, the cemetery, the recreation grounds at North Trade Road and Telham, street furniture and lighting, Mansers Shaw, Guild Shaw, the pre-school land, George Meadow and Upper Stumbletts.

It also manages the Amenity Field adjacent to Battle & Langton School (leased from East Sussex County Council), St Mary's churchyard (which is closed to further burials, so the maintenance has been transferred to the local authority), Abbey Green (by agreement with English Heritage) and other areas under licence from the Highway Authority, such as the oak tree area by the Fire Station.

As for all Council Committees, there is an Action Plan that details the short, medium and long term plans. Additionally, there is an Estate Management Programme that details the care and maintenance of every area of the Council’s estate.

All meetings take place at The Almonry, High Street, Battle, TN33 0EA - commencing at 7.30 pm, on the first Tuesday of alternate months
