  • SBNF Winter 2022 Update for Beach News

    We publish updates about the progress of the Neighbourhood Plan in almost every edition of Beach News. Here's a copy of the latest update from our new Committee members: Since last year’s AGM, the Forum (SBNF) has been busy updating the draft Neighbourhood Plan for a sustainability appraisal, and resolving funding issues. We’ve also been dealing with concerns that are repeatedly raised by beach residents, such as water quality and the transformation of the Western Harbour Arm. SBNF formally raised objections to the latest proposals for the former Howard Kent storage site at 5 Brighton Road. Drawing on feedback from the community; we objected to the composition of the building, harsh elevations, lack of historical context, as well as the lack of social / affordable housing. We also encouraged the developer to come up with a more energy-efficient design. You can read more about our views on the JAAP development and our draft development policies in the draft neighbourhood plan. We recognise that we need to resume community engagement soon, and have been working hard to resolve funding issues, as discussed at the Special General Meeting. A small grant for 2022-23 has now been approved by Locality. However we need the support of Adur District Council to enable us to receive this grant, since the Forum is not itself a legally accountable body. So, the SBNF Management Committee has asked ADC to act as an Accountable Body on our behalf. We hope for a prompt and positive outcome. Alternatively, we will set up a CIC. The AGM for 2022 is due and we plan to hold this meeting when key stakeholders are available and the issue of grant funding is resolved, so we can move forward with presenting the latest version of the Neighbourhood Plan to the community and stakeholders for discussion. We plan to hold Have Your Say Days during the forthcoming Regulation 14 consultation period for the Shoreham Beach Neighbourhood Plan. We would greatly appreciate anyone who can help with community engagement and invite all Shoreham Beach residents to join the Forum and get involved in any way you can or simply to keep up to date with the Neighbourhood Plan.
