Third application left over after abrupt end to council meeting

TAYLOR WIMPEY’S plans for 280 homes in Rose Green failed to be debated by councillors on Wednesday.


The housebuilder’s application for land north of Sefter Road and 80 Rose Green Road was the third of the three on the agenda for Arun District Council’s development control committee meeting.


The outline scheme was recommended for approval by one of the council’s planning officers, Michael Easton.


His report to the meeting stated: “The impact of the proposed development upon existing infrastructure has been mitigated through financial contribution and the provision of services and facilities.


“Adequate mitigation measures have also been identified which will mitigate the impact of the development upon the Pagham Harbour special protection area/Ramsar site to the south-west of the application site.”


He advised committee members to impose 33 conditions on the approval to limit the effect of the housing on the 18.74 hectares on the current area and its residents.


But the proposals, which cover the principle of the development, attracted 906 letters of objection as well as protests from three parish councils.


As well as the housing, the scheme includes land for a replacement building for the Aldwick and Pagham Scouts, an ambulance community response post facility and a primary school or care home.
