The Neighbourhood Plan will enable local people to have more influence over changes in the use and (re)development of land and buildings.
What we are discovering
Planning Applications Analysis (see posters below) - why the Council approves or refuses an application
Pressures for development - the possibility of meeting any of the Adur housing need in the Plan area
Who owns Shoreham Beach? We aim to influence the development of land in public ownership
The Neighbourhood Plan will have to take account of changes underway:
Riverside Car Park & Ferry Rd Improvements – Sept 2016 - March 2017.
Beach Green toilet block / cafe / community centre - Click here to read the results of our 2016 green spaces and facilities workshop.
Future Development – opportunities or threats?
The Neighbourhood Plan will identify development which it would support and that which it would oppose – but we cannot stop all development. Click on our poster or follow this link to get an overview of the major development pipeline in the Shoreham-by-sea area.
The 2015 Household Survey, 2016 workshops and 2017 youth survey have all demonstrated a wide range of residents’ attitudes to conservation and development and ideas for the future. You can see these comments in context on the interactive map.
We are taking these views into account in drawing up draft policy.
Research & Evidence
(Rev 3, Dec 2017)
The Neighbourhood Plan will identify and encourage diverse opportunities for the high quality improvement and small-scale, incremental redevelopment of the built environment, which respond to both local community needs/priorities and the increasing development pressures from the housing market and tourism.
