Report back from BEWAG meeting held on 15th January

Isabel Thurston and Chris Allington both attended the latest BEWAG meeting (the group that discusses issues around the Strategic Development Site south of the Parish). The discussions centred around the following areas:

  • A29 business case which was moving forward towards a public consultation
  • Planning applications, from developers who are not part of the Consortium, were being brought forward in the Aldingbourne area
  • Secondary school provision on a site in Yapton
  • Southern Water update on piping proposals for the Strategic site
  • Primary School provision – currently no proposals to build a new school or extend Barnham or Eastergate schools.

Recent Responses to consultations and discussions with Arun District Council

Consultation on Secondary School Site – Response sent supporting Yapton site but only if suitable measures are put in place for the additional traffic such a site would produce. Suggestions put forward included a shuttle bus, traffic calming and an upgrade to the canal route for non traffic usage.

Discussion with Kevin Owen at ADC had now confirmed that Barnham and Eastergate Parish Council will review the Neighbourhood Plan and that a Capacity profile proforma that requires completion in respect of employment areas will be undertaken. A joint profile will then be produced by ADC.
