The Approvals Process
This sets the overarching principles for the development of the strategic allocation, including land uses (e.g. housing, community and open space), where these will be located and the locations of access points and movement routes for the development.
The Framework Masterplan will be submitted to Arun District Council for public consultation and endorsement. It is expected it will be considered by the Council in Autumn 2020.
Future Planning Applications
Once the Framework Masterplan has been endorsed by the Council, planning applications can be prepared and submitted for the site. Due to the various landownership, a single application for the whole site is not expected to be submitted.
The indicative timescales for planning applications in the short term are currently:
West Sussex County Council: Detailed planning application for A29 realignment to the north of Barnham Road (Phase 1) expected to be submitted in Autumn 2020
Barratts (land north of Barnham Road) – Detailed planning application submission Autumn 2020 / Winter 2020/21 (subject to the timely submission of the WSCC application for the northern section of the A29)
CALA land parcel: Considering possible new application in autumn 2020
Other landowners immediately south of Barnham Road: Detailed planning applications are due to come forward in 2020.
The Southern Consortium: Hybrid planning application expected in winter 2020 (detailed planning application for the A29 realignment south of Barnham Road and outline planning application for the residential-led development on land north of the railway line.)
Planning applications for the remaining phases of the development are expected to come forward subsequently over the Local Plan period (up to 2031) and beyond.
All landowners are expected to submit planning applications for their land. These will be expected by the Council to conform with the Vision, Objectives and details of the Framework Masterplan document.
