AUGUST 2018 UPDATE: Date for next Steering Group meeting announced

When: Tuesday 21st August 2018 at 7pm

Where: Seaford Town Council Offices, 37 Church Street, Seaford, BN25 1HG

What will be discussed? The Agenda is available to download

This is a public meeting, so please do come along if you are interested in gaining an update on the progress of the Neighbourhood Plan to date and the next steps to come. 


Update From the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group April 2018:

'The Neigbourhood Plan Steering Group has received over 200 comments, largely favourable, on the Draft Plan and Sustainability Appraisal. We appreciate the time and effort of all those who attended our consultation meetings as well as those completing questionnaires.

Some technical issues have emerged regarding the Sustainability Appraiasal/ Strategic Environmental Assessment and, as a result, Specialist Consultancy support has been sought. A report to the Steering Group is due shortly.

The role of the Steering Group has now changed as we prepare for the next stage of developing the Plan (which will be seeking the agreement of the Town Council to the Plan being sent to Lewes District Council for a further Public Consultation before going to a professional Planning Inspector for scrutiny).

The Town Council agreed at its meeting on 8th March 2018 that the Steering Group should be restructured by replacing the present format (of local volunteers with Councillor representation) with a Steering comprised of three Councillors and one local volunteer continuing as Chairman. Other former members of the Steering Group will be consulted informally, as required, for advice on areas they have been particularly involved with.

It is not yet possible to set a date for the next Steering Group meeting as this is dependent on the nature and timing of advice from Consultants. When the date is known it will be published on our website along with an agenda.' Email:

The Council offers its sincerest thanks to all those involved in getting the draft Neighbourhood Plan to this stage (largely due to the work of the dedicated volunteers of the Steering and Focus Groups, under the guidance of Action in Rural Sussex) and thanks all those in advance who take the time to provide valuable feedback on the draft Plan and complete a response form - get involved, help decide the future of our town!
