Neighbourhood Plan

Our Vision Statement

Value, protect and promote the unique parish of Felpham, by respecting its heritage, appreciating its current community and being aspirational when planning its future and therefore ensuring “Felpham, in particular, is the sweetest spot on earth“ (William Blake 1801) 

The Felpham Neighbourhood Plan

The Felpham Neighbourhood Plan was adopted as planning policy by Arun District Council in 2014 following a Referendum of residents.

The Plan in 2020

Now that the Arun District Local Plan has been adopted our Plan needs to be updated to reflect both the ADC policies and changes to national planning policy.

The Plan reached the final stage and the Examiner determined that it did not meet the Basic Conditions due to a modifications statement being omitted from the Plan at the first stage of consultation.  This means that the Plan has to go back to the first stage and is now being advertised again under Reg 14 of  The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 

We are seeking your views on the amended Plan. We want to know whether you feel you can support the revised Plan.

Some policies have changed very little and some not at all. We have identified this against each policy and in the Modifications Statement. The current and proposed Plans can be viewed here:
