June News from Barnham Parish Council

Barnham, West Sussex

Edited extracts from the draft minutes of the Parish Council meeting held on 9th April 2018

County and District Councillor inputs

County Councillor, Derek Whittington had given his apologies so there were no County Council updates to report. District Councillors Christopher Hughes and John Charles both reflected on the discussions that had taken place during the very interesting and well attended Joint Annual Parish Assembly. The main item had been presentations on the proposed development of the Barnham/Eastergate/Westergate Strategic site included in Arun District Council’s Local Plan currently awaiting final approval by the Inspector.

Planning Applications

The Council considered the following new applications:

BN/6/18 – Land rear of Lillies, Yapton Road – Approval of reserved maters following outline consent relating to appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for erection of 38 no. Dwellings including open space, landscaping and new access. The Council noted that this was a resubmission of application BN/28/17 to which the Council had objected. However, the resubmission had addressed the concerns raised by the Council’s objections which related to drainage and flooding potential to the watercourse at the southern end of the site and the lack of a connection to the adjoining Angel’s Nursery site and ultimately Murrell’s Field and the Council agreed that no objection would be raised to the new application.

BN/7/18 – Land to the north of The Flint Barn, Yapton Road – Erection of 1 dwelling and garage. Two previous applications had been considered on this site, the first was similar to this and had been approved conditionally, the second was an application seeking the erection of 3 dwellings on the site which was refused by ADC and turned down on appeal.
The application now submitted was a slightly changed re-submission of the application that was
M/17-18/10 31 approved for one building and the Council having looked at the changes, which included a slight relocation of the building on the site itself and a small increase in size of footprint. Agreed that no objection would be raised to the new application.
