UPDATE – Please note the consultation period has now been extended until the 31st May 2022.

The consultation for the Easebourne Parish Design Statement officially begins on Tuesday 5th April and lasts until the 17th May.

This is a document created by a dedicated team of Parish volunteers over several years and it is now proposed to be adopted by the South Downs National Park Authority as a Supplementary Planning Document.

Development sites update

As you may already be aware, there has been an extension agreed to the deadline for the determination of the 2 remaining applications for development in the village, at the Cowdray Works Yard and the old Primary School site.

There are 2 very detailed letters from the SDNPA Major Projects Officer now available on the Planning Portal that go into detail about concerns with the submitted plans. We now await responses from the Developers as to how they will adjust their proposals.

The letters can be viewed here:

Current Egmont Road Planning Application for 20 Dwellings Withdrawn

SDNP/2104043/FUL
Recreation Ground and Allotment Gardens, Egmont Road, Easebourne
Erection of 20 dwellings with access, parking and landscaping following demolition and site preparation
The above planning action has been withdrawn by Metis Homes.
Metis Homes had been advised that should they have chosen to pursue the current application, the report prepared for the SDNP Planning Committee by the Planning Officer, would have recommended refusal of the application.
The letter from the Planning Officer to Metis Homes, detailed the reasons for the refusal recommendation.  Metis Homes will now need to consider these reasons which must be reflected within any future development design submission, for this site.

Three Developments – Paper copies available to view plus more time to comment

Please find below an update we have received from Naomi Langford, the Major Projects Officer at South Downs National Park Authority regarding the 4 planning applications within the village.

“Paper copies of all documents for the new applications are now available to view at the South Downs Centre in the Public Access Room. No booking required, just turn up during reception opening times (listed on our website here South Downs Centre – South Downs National Park Authority) This is my only public copy so please don’t remove anything!

I’m aware the original deadline for public comments is up so I am able to extend this until 8th October to allow viewing of the paper documents as well as more time to consider the details on the file as I appreciate these are quite large and there are 4 of them at once.

I am also aware that there is some local concern that letters are not appearing on the file. Due to additional processing requirements for handwritten letters which require scanning etc these can take a few days to appear online. We are taking in all forms of comment so please bear with us.”

Kind regards,

Naomi
