We are disappointed to see this land agent persist with the application to develop 70 houses at Townfield.
This, coupled with the 54 houses already being planned at Chapel FIeld on Plaistow Road, will see our village grow by 55% - this is not sustainable and the Parish Council plans to oppose this application.
We encourage everyone to please submit your own thoughts to CDC as soon as possible. Please don’t put it off! The deadline is 20 May, so the sooner the better.
Click here to go the the CDC Planning portal to submit your comments about the planning application.

Boundary Commission for England Review 2023
The Boundary Commission for England is proposing changes to the constituency boundaries in England, which would mean Kirdford would move from Arundel and South Downs to the Chichester constituency.
The proposed changes can be viewed here – just type in your postcode https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/
We would urge you to give your feedback
to BCE and help to protect our rural communities and preserve our dark skies.
If you wish your views to be
considered, please ensure they are received by BCE no later than the closing
date of this statutory consultation period, which is 2 August 2021.
For further information please go
Below is a suggested template to send to BCE. You can also
leave your comments on their website using this link https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/ and
then click the ‘comments’ button to the right of the boundaries map.
Please send your submission to: Freepost REPRESENT

To whom it
2023 Boundary Review Consultation – West Sussex
I currently live in the Arundel & South Downs constituency and I wish to oppose the current BCE proposals on the following grounds:
I understand that there is a counter proposal which has been put
forward by the Member of Parliament for Arundel and South Downs and which has
been discussed locally. This counter proposal has my full support.
degree of change imposed upon the electorate – with the current constituency
where I live broken into no fewer than six successor parts – suggests that the
Boundary Commission has given insufficient regard to boundaries of existing
constituencies as there are viable alternatives that would less inconvenience
essential character of Arundel and South Downs is of a rural constituency lying
between the Downs away from the coastal strip with an east-west orientation and
a string of similar and connected small towns and villages. This has not been
recognised as a geographic factor nor in terms of local ties; and
changes to the existing boundary number of split wards impacting just a few
thousand electors could prevent wholesale change impacting hundreds of
thousands of electors;
proposed inclusion of Salvington and Offington Ward from Worthing BC could
easily be substituted by restoring the Pulborough and Storrington Wards in
Horsham DC, materially improving existing community ties and reducing the
degree of change.
