Upper Beeding Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan

Call for Sites

Background

A Neighbourhood Plan (NP) is a mechanism for helping communities, including both local residents and businesses to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. It can be used to:

  • Develop a shared vision for the neighbourhood.
  • Propose where new homes, shops, offices and other development should be built.
  • Identify and protect important local green spaces.
  • Influence what new buildings should look like.

Upper Beeding is preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan, under the provisions of the Localism Act 2012. As part of its work in assessing future development needs, the Upper Beeding Neighbourhood Plan Team is calling upon landowners and agents of land within the Villages / NP area for expressions of interest in applying for future development permission.

 Why are we calling for sites?

 This is an informal opportunity for landowners and developers to propose sites within the Upper Beeding Parish (UB, Small Dole, Edburton & Truleigh Hill) for development. This exercise will not in itself decide whether a site would be allocated for development by the neighbourhood plan nor will it commit the proposer(s) to applying for planning consent, but it will enable the committee to better understand the needs and wishes of the electors within its Parish area.

The site suggestions received by us will be used to guide and inform the preparation of the Allocations of Land and Site Development section of the Neighbourhood Plan.

If you want a site/s to be considered for development by the Neighbourhood Plan, we should like to hear from you. The sites need not be in your ownership if you have a responsibility for managing them and they can be proposals for a wide range of development uses.

If you could submit an address / map reference of the site with a picture and the address/ details of the landowner plus any other useful details.
