The Society’s interests in Planning
The Society and CCAAC (Chichester Conservation Area Advisory Committee) consider the output from various authorities (principally West Sussex County Council, Chichester District Council and Chichester City Council) and respond as needed – particularly if they affect the City and its immediate surroundings. The main regular focus is on planning matters be it, for example, the local plan or individual planning applications. The aim is always to be constructive in responses. Be aware that a response is not made if there are no substantive comments to make.
The Society maintains a particularly close watch on major housing developements such as that west of the City in what was Whitehouse Farm. The more significant submissions from the Society are posted on this website and are visible via ‘Recent Posts‘ to the right of each web page and, later, will appear in the ‘Earlier Posts‘ menu at the bottom of the page. Fuller details about the individual applications can be found on the Council’s planning application site by entering the reference on the Council’s site .
