The Kipling Gardens

From Rottingdean Heritage's History...
Originating from the former Rottingdean Ratepayers’ Association the Society, as we know it today, came into being following the publication of the 1947 Town and Country Planning Act whereby every local authority had to submit a development plan by the end of that year. Residents felt that Rottingdean was taking a disproportionate share of the proposed increase in housing which would effectively ruin its historic village character.

One of the early successes of the Preservation Society was their opposition to the development of the Kipling Gardens, now such a centerpiece of the village, and the Society still retains strong management liaison with the City Council via a member of its Executive Committee and The Friends of Kipling Gardens.
