Advisory groups set to be started in the wake of local plan

AN ADVISORY group to ‘lead and walk through’ housing plans for the Alddingbourne, Barnham, Eastergate and Westergate areas has been given the thumbs-up.

At their meeting on Monday members of Arun District Council’s cabinet agreed to 
the set-up of the two groups, one for the villages and one for Angmering.

The area’s have been allocated as strategic housing sites in Arun’s local plan.

Council officer Neil Crowther said: “We 
have had a couple of advisory groups that have been operating for a number of years, one has run for the site six development for five or six years and we have had the north Littlehampton steering group.

“We are proposing to set up a couple 
more advisory groups 
to lead and walk 
through the proposals that accompany the local plan.”

Cabinet member for planning Cllr Ricky Bower said: “These 
two groups are 
exactly the way forward and we have good experience of delivering this kind of thing elsewhere.”
