Update on the Arun Local Plan 2017

Written by CPRE Sussex

CPRE Sussex attended and spoke at the Examination in Public (EiP) of the new Arun Local Plan in September 2017. We expressed concerns about the lack of consultation, the level of housing proposed and the impact this would have on the local environment and the lack of a coherent strategy for ensuring that infrastructure is put in place at the right time to accommodate this development.

CPRE Sussex has today (28th September) lodged a holding objection to proposals for New Monks Farm at Lancing. Our main concerns relate to the impact on the local road network (particularly the A27,) the impact on the National Park (including access for walkers, equestrians and cyclists) and inadequate measures to prevent flooding. Please feel free to use elements of our response in the letter below to email Adur Council if you would also like to object.


Despite a strong objection from CPRE Sussex, WSCC today (12th September) approved an application by KOGL for an extension to oil exploration at Broadford Bridge, West Chiltington Parish, Horsham District.. Dr Roger Smith spoke at the hearing  - his speech is below.

Mid Sussex's new District Plan has at last got through its public examination phase and taken a significant step forward towards implementation.  CPRE Sussex took an active part throughout the 9 months of the public examination period, pressing the case for a more appropriate balance to be drawn between the drive for new housing and the District’s special environmental and landscape character. We found ourselves fighting not only the developers but sadly also the Council.
