Pre-submission Local Plan now published


The Pre-Submission Local Plan has now been published.

It will be considered by the Local Plan Sub-Committee at their meeting on 16th May 2013. (6pm at the Civic Centre, Maltravers Rd, Littlehampton)

Then it will go forward to Full Council on 29th May 2013 to be authorised to go out to regulation 20 public consultation.

The plan advocates “Garden City” style developments in Angmering, Barnham, Eastergate and Aldingbourne. It excludes the two largest brownfield sites in the district – Ford Airfield and the former Topblock factory.

By leaving these brownfield sites available, will this make it more or less likely that Arun is required to make provision for additional housing on behalf of Worthing, London and the South Downs National Park?

We must also wonder if this plan is all about the personal ambition of a small clique of Councillors?

If you are concerned in any way, then please attend the meetings on 16th and 29th May.

    Yes, one wonders what has been agreed with neighbouring councils. This link shows other areas in the country are refusing to be railroaded.
