Seaford's Neighbourhood Plan Starts With Public Get Together

Submitted on 12 April 2016 by Council Officers

Seaford Town Council has recently commissioned Action In Rural Sussex (AIRS) to facilitate a Neighbourhood Plan for the Town. The first stage in this process is holding a drop in public meeting on Wednesday 20th April from 6pm to 9pm at Seaford Baptist Church.

Anyone who is interested in how the Town will develop into the future is invited to pop in and learn more. As well as there being people available to discuss the plan with, there will also be a presentation at 7.30pm to give more information on the plan going forward.    

It is envisaged to get as many volunteers as possible to help develop the plan. Volunteers will take part in themed groups to develop a section of the plan which can cover such areas as Town Centre developments and new housing allocation.

What our Neighbourhood Plan CAN do?

·    Set out what is or will be needed in terms of environment, facilities, services, traffic etc

·    Create and protect our local green spaces

·    Determine how many new homes should be built in Seaford and where development should happen

·    Define the types of homes needed e.g. flats, bungalows, small houses, large houses

·    Include policies that take precedence over existing policies in the local plan provided it does not conflict with the strategic policies in the local plan

What our Neighbourhood Plan CANNOT do?

·    Conflict with strategic policies in the local plan

·    Be used to prevent or stop development included in the local plan
