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   see also CDC Flier

Review of Local Neighbourhood Plan for Chidham & Hambrook

Chidham & Hambrook parish council is in the process of reviewing its local neighbourhood plan. This is an important document that needs local input from those living in Chidham, Hambrook and Nutbourne East as it would make clear what kind of developments will be acceptable, permissible and what we should reject. In particular, the review will be directed towards future housing developments, the need for a local retail centre, leisure facilities, improved local transport and how we can protect our local countryside and open spaces. If you wish to be involved in the Review of our local Neighbourhood Plan, an open meeting is being held in the Chidham Village Hall on Thursday 22nd November at 7pm.
