Pagham Neighbourhood Plan
Work commenced on a Neighbourhood Plan for Pagham (PNP) over 5 years ago, involving over 30 local individuals and Councillors who prepared a draft document for consideration by Arun District Council and subsequent submission to an Inspector for approval.
During ADC’s review process, it was decided that further work was required to understand the environmental impact of the proposals contained in the PNP and studies were undertaken. After these had been completed and revisions made to the PNP, Arun District Council announced that there would be two major strategic housing sites in Pagham (Pagham North and Pagham South) included in its Local Plan. As the PNP and Local Plan were therefore at considerably at odds, the Parish Council felt it could not progress with the PNP at that time.
Further versions of a Neighbourhood Plan were consulted on in accordance with Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Plan (General) Regulations 2012 during 2019/20. The Parish Council chose not to proceed further with those proposals in August 2020.
