There will be a meeting concerning the local Neighbourhood Plan at 7.0 pm on Thursday 30th March at the Sports Pavilion, Rookwood Road. Neighbourhood planning is a way for local communities to decide the future of their areas and will form part of the development plan used by Chichester District Council in determining planning applications. The validity of any such plan will require evidence of sufficient local participation.
The church is an integral part of the local community and this presents an opportunity for us to express our view of what is important in the life and development of the village. A strong church presence at the meeting would be a very positive demonstration of our commitment to the community.
