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 2019

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 has now reached the final stage and is being advertised for a final consultation period. 

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:
