We are now making some very real progress with this community lead initiative.
Currently we are pulling together all the factual information required to produce an evidence based Neighbourhood Plan for Southwick.
In addition, a professional consultant who specialises in Neighbourhood Planning has been appointed. As a result, we now have a detailed plan that will take us all the way through the process to facilitate production of a Neighbourhood Plan
We have also formed a Steering Committee, comprised of Parish Council Members and Members of the Community.
The immediate focus of the Steering Committee is to complete all Scoping Research, progress with Community Engagement and undertake a comprehensive Housing Needs Survey.
But please see below, a more detailed summary of progress to-date:
Immediate Next Steps
Clearly, there are a lot of interesting activities going on and much work still to do.
If you would like to get involved and be part of Southwick’s Neighbourhood Planning, the Steering Committee would be more than happy to hear from you. Please see below contact details should you wish to contribute in some way.
