Details and regular training
February 10th, 2022
Chichester District Council has recently made it known to the Parish Council that they are investigating housing numbers scenarios for the North Eastern Parishes of Chichester District as shown in the attached letter.
This is to supplement the demand for housing in the District which they are unable to meet in the Southern District. Whilst the Parish Council has revised its Neighbourhood Plan to include the uplift in numbers that CDC requested some time ago, this allocation is now out of date as is the Neighbourhood Plan even before it went to referendum. The Parish Council are reviewing this turn of events before deciding how to respond. The detail of this will be presented at the Annual Parish Meeting on 25th April.
Please come along to the Parish Council hosted event for the Parish.
The Speakers for this event are:
Gareth Evans -Chichester District Council
Lucy Hallett Social Prescriber with Loxwood Doctors Surgery- Well being
Chair of the Council- Activities of the Parish Coucnil over the last couple of years
Chair of Planning -Neighboruhood Plan and development in Loxwood.

SUSSEX TRANSPORT PLAN
West Sussex County Council are reviewing the West Sussex Transport Plan (WSTP) to update the County Council’s approach to investment in, and management of, the transport network for the period of 2022-2036. Transport affects every aspect of our lives including how we work, socialise, access education and health services. We must plan for our future transport needs in order to protect and enhance our beautiful and prosperous county. In Autumn 2020 we asked interested people about their key transport issues and priorities through the WSTP review survey. This information is being used to develop the draft West Sussex Transport Plan which will set out how the County Council intends to address challenges including:
· a growing and ageing population
· transport emissions
· rural isolation
· public health and wellbeing
· road safety.
The draft West Sussex Transport Plan is shortly to be published for consultation (summer 2021) and adoption of the new plan is expected in early 2022. The consultation documents can be viewed on this link West Sussex Transport Plan consultation For further information regarding this consultation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01243 642105 - leaving your name, email address and interest (for example whether you are a resident, business owner, transport operator and so on).
