Public Consultation on Local Plan – ‘CDC Preferred Approach’

Chichester District Council has launched a Public Consultation about the Local Plan Review (2019 - 2034) A consequence of the changes to the Local Plan proposed by the Council,  Chidham & Hambrook will be expected to take additional housing, ‘a minimum of 500 homes’.  It is anticipated that the land for the additional houses will be identified in the revised Neighbourhood Plan that the Parish Council has agreed to undertake.  The plan also proposes 1250 homes in Southbourne parish, and 250 in Bosham (Highgove Farm). The Public Consultation started on December 13 and will be open for 8 weeks. Follow the Link to the CDC Consultation
