1 Response to VAG Committee Meeting on Tuesday 13th November 7. 35 pm

  1. In their submission to the draft Local Plan Chichester District Council “leaked” the fact that the Coastal West Sussex Strategic Housing Market Assessment Update 2012 (SHMA), which is about to be published, concludes that meeting Arun District’s development needs would require provision of 600-750 homes per year based on demographic projections.

    I suspect this document will be published shortly after the VAG meeting – but at least VAG is forewarned. It would be interesting to know exactly when Arun saw the first draft of this document?

    I can’t help wondering if the 400 p.a. “preference” was a deliberetae ploy by Arun to create “false hope” amongst the public and their action groups. Arun would rather have everyone talking about lower (unrealistic?) housing numbers than alternative locations (don’t mention Ford Airfield Captain Mainwaring!) . Notice how little discussion there has been about alternative locations!! At the recent Local Plan Sub Committee meeting two councillors suggested that Ford Airfield should be reconsidered – their contribution was censored from the minutes!

    By the time the public realise that they have been sold a dummy it could be too late to influence change.

    Perhaps Arun’s councillors are more clever than everyone gives them credit for? A clever way to get a controversial plan through?
