Written by CPRE Sussex

Adur District has grown increasingly popular for residents moving from Brighton and London, with Shoreham Beach sometime referred to as ‘a new Sand Banks’ with its grandiose and occasionally prize winning homes replacing old railway carriage based bungalows.

Brighton & Hove District Report

Written by CPRE Sussex

The Brighton & Hove Local CPRE Group was reformed in the autumn of 2016, having been dormant for few years. Since then four meetings have been held in the Old Ship Hotel on Brighton seafront. 

Approval in 2015 of the Horsham District’s local plan, the ‘HDPF’, by the examining Planning Inspector, was conditional on the Council’s acceptance of his imposed interim-housing target of 800 houses per year, to be reviewed by Horsham District Council (HDC) by November 2018.

 

CPRE Sussex has submitted comments as part of the South Downs Local Plan Pre-submission Consultation.

Mid Sussex Update – Winter 2017

Written by Michael Brown

The principal focus of our work in Mid Sussex has continued to relate to the new draft District Plan, the details of which we reported in our July update and by letter to all CPRE members living in Mid Sussex.  It is a draft Plan which intends to require new homes to be built at a rate of 876 dwellings p.a., a rate which the District has never consistently achieved before, and it is set to rise still further (to 1,090 dpa) from 2024.   The challenge of finding sustainable locations for this massive hike in new building without ruining the prized rural character of Mid Sussex is going to be a formidable one.  It will put huge pressure on the District Council (MSDC) to give proper weight to the environmental and countryside protections that planning rules purport to offer when assessing site allocations and planning applications.  The role of CPRE has never been more important.
