Neighbourhood Plan (SNP)
2014 – 2029
Facilitator: Rowena Tyler
no order of priority, the main issues which the delegates feel should be included
into the policies of the Neighbourhood Plan are:
policy to ensure that there is no reduction in green recreation space in
the village as a result of development – an increase would be welcomed.
ground to be landscaped, drainage problems sorted out, residents of
adjoining older people’s home to be given better access to this space.
from Sompting to SDNP downland to be established – bridge, crossing with
lights, or other option, but should be suitable for horses, pedestrians
site at Howick Lane (possibly earmarked for Riding for Disabled), if not
this to be regenerated.
between Beggars Bush and Tich Hill Farm: SDNPA controlled. Any
development to be appropriate for increasing the viability of the farming
community, or to help local employment and skills. E.g farm shop, winery,
local trades. Sompting Estates to be on advice panel.
new development to include small ponds and reservoirs, linked to existing
ditches, which should be opened and finance given to continue
maintenance. Reed beds to be planted. This fits in with S o P idea to
create a new Nature Conservation area, and would be part of a biodiversity
campaign. Area below the proposed new development sites and the old
watercress fields would be ideal.
developments should not add to light pollution, particularly towards the
with neighbouring parishes whether a wind turbine is a possibility.
Action in rural Sussex.
