Public consultation for 3 development sites closes on 30th April

Please note, this consultation closes on Friday 30th April at midnight. Hard copies of the proposals are now available by emailing parishclerk@easebourne.org.

Metis Homes is inviting the local community to view and comment on its emerging planning proposals for three allocated development sites in Easebourne as part of an online public consultation.

The public consultation provides more information on Metis Homes’ plans for land at Cowdray Works Yard, land at Egmont Road and the Former Primary School, all of which have been allocated for development in the adopted South Downs Local Plan.

The proposals would see the three sites developed in accordance with the relevant Local Plan policies to deliver a series of up to 20 bespoke residential properties on each site and to make provision for an element of commercial development on the Cowdray Works Yard site.

FINAL CHANCE TO HAVE YOUR SAY ON SOUTH DOWNS LOCAL PLAN

If you’re not familiar with planning you may never have heard of local plans, but they have the power to make a big difference to the world around you. Next spring SDNP will submit the first ever South Downs Local Plan to the Government – setting out planning policies across the whole of the National Park, how land is used and what can be built where. But first we need to have one final full public consultation.

COWDRAY PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IN EASEBOURNE

Easebourne Parish Council will be holding a planning meeting (in public as usual) to discuss the draft allocations policy for the village and the Cowdray Estate development proposals following its public consultation, details of which are below. We would encourage all residents to attend the consultation as any proposals will have an impact on the whole village.

The Parish Council’s public meeting will be on Monday 10 July at 7.30pm in the Refectory

Housing Allocation

Following last week’s meeting Easebourne Parish Council would like to make it clear that the leaflet issued to residents was not authorised by the Parish Council.  In addition, the plans on the leaflet were not the allocations policy plans.
South Downs National Park (“SDNPA”) is the statutory planning authority but it will delegate some decisions to Chichester District Council.  As the statutory planning authority SDNPA has to produce a local plan for the National Park areas which it is still in the process of doing.  In addition, it will have an annual housebuilding target across the National Park.  The allocations policy will enable SDNPA to look at how it might achieve its target for housebuilding.  It is rather a blunt housebuilding tool as the target is not ward/area specific and so housing need in areas is not always considered.
The Parish Council has requested a meeting with SDNPA to discuss the allocations policy and to share our concerns and those of residents raised at the meeting.  These will be reflected in the comments the Parish Council submits.  The allocations plan is then due to be discussed by SDNPA at its committee meeting on 15 June.
If SDNPA approves the allocations policy, the three sites identified will carry with them a presumption in favour of development but the landowner would still need to submit planning applications for the sites which would be considered in the usual way.  The flipside of this is that any other sites, not identified in the allocations policy, which are brought forward in the Parish, would not necessarily be considered suitable for development due to their omission from the allocations policy.
