We must make it very clear before going any further that the Villages Action Group is NOT against house building to provide for local need and for the natural population growth in the Arun district. We are NOT Nimbys and fully support our local Parish Councils’ estimates in their yet to be completed Neighbourhood plans for reasonable numbers of houses to be built in the villages over the next 15 years.
These numbers will be designed to cope with the numbers of families and individuals needing houses in our villages. The only problem is how to make them more affordable for all concerned. We also support the provision of necessary social housing for those who are unable to afford a house.
