Representation ID: 2909

Received: 05/02/2019

Respondent: Councillor Christopher Page

Representation Summary:

Policy AL6; 4th bullet: a minimum of 100 houses on a disputed link road, followed by a glib statement about improving the highway. The latter should be the pre-condition for the former.

Received: 06/02/2019

Respondent: CPRE Sussex

Representation Summary:

This major development is directly adjacent to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and it is inevitable that it will have both a direct and indirect negative impact on this protected landscape. Add considerably to the negative impact through air, soil and light pollution. Falls within the SSSI impact zone. Construction planned on a flood plain. Proper consultation has not taken place with the Harbour Conservancy on this proposal. No evidence is presented of an environmental audit of this area adjacent to the AONB. we fully endorse all the objections and comments submitted by the Chichester Harbour Conservancy

Local Plan Review: Preferred Approach 2016-2035

Representation ID: 3168

Received: 05/02/2019

Respondent: Mr Alan Carn

Representation Summary:

This area, with its flooding potential, and proximity to Chichester Harbour, should not be developed further. 100 new dwellings are not sustainable, a new link road will generate more traffic close to a sensitive area and make it harder to refuse future development plans when the area is served by the 'new road'. The area is now fairly inaccessible and should be left as an important link in the North-South wildlife corridor, rather than opened up to dog walkers etc. Keep the inaccessible area as it is.

Respondent: Mrs Sarah Sharp

Representation Summary:

Objections on grounds that link road not wanted by residents; road and housing will take away valuable agricultural land and lead to further congestion; direct links between new development and the city centre/bus and rail transport hub need to be provided. Walkers and cyclists need to travel most direct route; bridges should have slopes as well as stairs; it is not possible to mitigate the destruction of wildlife.

Support principle however there is opportunity for infrastructure requirements to be delivered without reliance on other sites/infrastructure funds if greater proportion of housing is delivered on site.

Site is suitable to accommodate a strategic employment site.

Local Plan Review: Preferred Approach 2016-2035

Representation ID: 3526

Received: 15/01/2019

Respondent: West Wittering Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Concerns about AL6. The link road site is at risk of both tidal and fluvial flooding on ground which already has a high-water table and no consideration is given to rising sea level associated with climate change. This site should be rejected and replaced by AL4, which is in the current Local Plan, even if this requires compulsory purchase powers to acquire it.

Full text:

The Parish Council challenges the assertion that the provision of new dwellings will make the area more self contained. This needs more robust evidence. Currently the village of East Wittering has lost 4 banks, a holiday centre and a large pub and businesses rely heavily on seasonal tourism for trade. New homes without new local jobs will be a drain on current infrastructure. market homes are likely to add to the number of residents getting off the peninsular for work and will therefore not reduce the areas reliance on Chichester city centre.

In addition:

1 The funding for the £65m to carryout the road mitigation measures for the A27 etc exceeds the figure which could reasonable be obtained by developer contributions. The ability to delivery these measures to mitigate the additional traffic arising from the local plan housing numbers is therefore uncertain. The local plan should therefore set out how it plans to deal with this major uncertainty. This could possibly be achieved by having clearly defined phasing with trigger points which require a change in approach, or the housing numbers reduced. This has happened before with road mitigation works not being delivered because of lack of funding (Selsey Tram)
2 There are major concerns about the strategic industrial / housing site AL6 (Land South West of Chichester Apluldram & Donnington). This requires the construction of a Link road between Fishbourne Birdham Lane at Donnington. This site is at risk of both tidal and fluvial flooding on ground which already has a high-water table and no consideration is given to rising sea level associated with climate change. To quote WSCC who are the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) 'These limits how the site can be effectively drained without a step change from typically employed methods to embrace more innovative and currently expensive options'. This site should be rejected and replaced by AL4, which is in the current Local Plan, even if this requires compulsory purchase powers to acquire it.
3 The above link road combined with the proposed A27 junction designs at Stockbridge and Whyke which bans right turns would result in significant forecast changes to traffic flows on the Manhood Peninsula. As WSCC, as the Highways Authority, points out it requires further feasibility work before the Local Plan is submitted to show that the transport strategy can be delivered and funded.
4 Both CDC and WSCC promoted a Mitigated Northern Route for the A27 at Chichester as the preferred option. Policy S30 which introduces 'wildlife corridors' conflicts with the ability to deliver a Northern Route. Policy S30 requires amending so that it does not exclude the possibility of a Northern Route. There cannot be any policy which excludes the possibility of a Northern route.
5 Additional traffic at the Fishbourne roundabout should be assessed in terms of air quality and accident numbers.

Object to the provision of a commercial development site and raised link road near Apuldram/Donnington as this area contains some of the most important cathedral views in the district from the harbour, marina, Salterns Way, and A286- views enjoyed by many visitors and residents.Also site is on flood plain and adjacent to internationally important habitat areas.This development would be better sited in the noise buffer zone to the south/west of the motor racing circuit

Generally support but consider increasing housing numbers in the city and adjacent surrounds by allocation of more social housing and higher density housing, including more apartments.
