Summary of Feedback from Public Meetings


 

Southbourne Parish Neighbourhood Plan – New Homes

Comments following 23rd November public meeting:

Although we are generally opposed to increasing the size of our village we have been impressed by the professionalism and commitment shown by Seaward Properties.

Seaward have turned up to all the meetings we have attended, their plans have been clear and well presented.  The sites they propose (‘Orchard’ and ‘Paddock’) are not ‘Greenfield’ and their current usage is relatively unsightly.  

The main access to the Orchard site is direct from the A259 and should not cause traffic increase through the current Southbourne Station level crossing (a major bottleneck) and add to the already bad situation along Stein Road at school pickup time.

The access to Paddock site is from Cook’s lane but the design of the development may actually improve access through the narrow lane, our only concern would be that the level crossing at Inland Road should be improved and the lane on the South side widened.  We would hope the Seaward Properties would either have this in their plan already or could be asked to do something.

Seaward Properties seems to have taken this new local planning process seriously and we would like to think that they would work with the community throughout the construction phases if they were successful.

We must also add that Rydon Homes have also produced some very polished plans and have made good presentations, however we feel that this site would substantially increase traffic through Stein Road and it would be built on areas of ‘Greenfield’ sites, which we think should be avoided.

The current plans for Alfrey close, with the nursing home, appear to us to be well thought out (with potential for some local employment) but we would like to think that the warden assisted homes on that site should be part of the 300 homes allocated to the village.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local Parish Neighbourhood Plan team for arranging these meetings and helping the residents to self-determine the building sites given the constraints imposed on them by Chichester DC.
