The changing shape of Lancing have your say…..

Plans produced by Adur district council propose identifying
New Monks Farm, currently a greenfield site, as a site for
development of housing, commercial and community buildings.
The site is one of four sites identified in the Revised Draft
Adur Local Plan 2013. The other sites are West Sompting,
Shoreham Airport and Shoreham Harbour. The Adur Local Plan
will provide a strategy for development in Adur up to 2031
and the revised draft is available now for you to read and
comment on. However, time is short as the consultation period
ends on 7th November. Concerns have been expressed on whether
the development of the New Monks Farm site would have a detrimental
effect on local flooding risk. There have also been questions asked
about whether the infrastructure (roads, etc.) will be sufficient
to support such new development.However, Adur District Council says,
when finalised, the plan will seek to achieve a balance in meeting
needs for development whilst striving to protect and enhance the
character and features of Adur such as its open spaces, landscape
and historic features. There are a few ways in which you can get
more information and then let Adur District Council know what you
like and / or don’t like about their plan.

Copies of the Revised Draft Plan can be found in local libraries in Adur

during the consultation. Additionally you can read the plan online:
