Adur Local Plan is backed by the government inspector
Homes and workspaces of the future will be delivered without damaging the individual identity of towns and villages in Adur – that’s the message from the government inspector after he backed the Adur Local Plan.
Adur District Council leaders believe the document, which will guide development in the Local Plan area until 2032, gives the area a strong base to provide properties and jobs while protecting the unique environment of the area.
Despite the Plan not fully meeting housing demand in the area, planning inspector David Hogger has informed officials he was happy with the blueprint – adding “the Council’s approach is justified and in all other respects sound” due to “significant constraints of building” in an area buffered by the sea and the South Downs.
Key headlines in the document include:
· Delivering a minimum of 3,718 properties up until 2032 – more than half the housing need of 6,825;
· Delivering a minimum of 41,000 square metres of commercial space across three main sites – Shoreham Airport, Shoreham Harbour and New Monks Farm;
· All developments of ten or more homes required to provide 30% affordable housing;
· Preserving a “local green gap” to ensure individual settlements like Shoreham and Lancing retain their individual identities;
· Inclusion of New Monks Farm in Lancing, Shoreham Harbour Arm and land at West Sompting as areas to be redeveloped.
