Chidham and Hambrook - The Neighbourhood Plan 2016 - made

The Chidham and Hambrook Neighbourhood Plan has been compiled by local residents and the Parish Council. It establishes a vision for the evolution and long-term sustainability of Chidham and Hambrook Parish over the period 2014-2029. The plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally.
The Chidham and Hambrook Neighbourhood Area covers just under 11 km² and is made up of three communities; Chidham, Hambrook and part of East Nutbourne. The Neighbourhood Area is bounded by the A27 to the north, and the Chichester Harbour AONB to the south.

The Chidham & Hambrook Neighbourhood Plan
At the Full Council meeting on 20 September 2016, Chichester District Council resolved to 'Make' the Chidham and Hambrook Neighbourhood Development Plan. This means that the Chidham and Hambrook Neighbourhood Development Plan has been brought into legal force, and forms part of the statutory Development Plan for Chidham and Hambrook. Consequently, decisions on whether or not to grant planning permission in Chidham and Hambrook will need to be made in accordance with the Chidham and Hambrook Neighbourhood Development Plan, unless material considerations indicate otherwise.

Sunley Homes - Appeal Rejected. A message from Andy Collins.
I am happy to say that the Neighbourhood Plan made a substantial contribution to the Inspectors decision and was supported by the Office for the Department for Communities and Local Government. My thanks for the hard work and many hours put in to get us to this stage. I think this has made all the effort worthwhile.

Neighbourhood Plan News March 2014
Just a quick update on where we are currently.
Consultation
This process is going well. The questionnaires sent out to every household in the Neighbourhood Plan registered area have now been collected back in. I can report that we have had to date a 68.8% response (completed forms).
Last Tuesday 25th March we held a Special Interest Group consultation event. We had a response of around 50% of those who were invited. We put questions on development, access, infrastructure and recreation from which we have had a good response. The ladies of the WI put on a buffet, teas and coffees for all those attending. I have had some feed back from a few of those attending to say they thought the evening went well and was a worthwhile exercise. There were one or two who were unable to attend as the event was clashing with other commitments in their diaries. One notable organisation that could not make it was the Harbour Conservancy although a representative did put in an appearance he was unable to stay. I have promised to send him a copy of our findings for the evening and invited him to add comments from his organisation.
We will need to consult the main service providers, English Heritage and the Environment Agency. But the initial consultation is now complete and the process of drafting a plan can now begin.
The Plan
Our next meeting as a working group will begin the construction of our Neighbourhood Plan. I have received a copy of a Neighbourhood Plan that is nearing the final stages before it goes to a referendum. We can look at how this has been constructed and use it as a template ready for discussion.
We are now due to send our first report to Locality on our expenditure of the grant funds. I will be helping Trevor to prepare this in the next day or two.
Andy Collins
Neighbourhood Plan News February 2014
The Neighbourhood Plan Team has recently applied for a grant to help with the preparation of our village plan and have now received £6,012 from the Community Development Foundation.
Initial expenditure has now commenced and in order to maximise the community benefit from the grant the printing of the questionnaire was given to Park Design + Print .
This is a 'not for profit' company that has been set up to teach school children the essence of commerce and how to run a company.
Hopefully every household in the Parish (including those in Nutbourne who have recently joined) should have received this questionnaire and managed to fill it in. If you have not received it or need help filling it out, please contact a member of the Parish Council.

Neighbourhood Plan News - Feb 4, 2014
A questionnaire will be distributed to every household within the Parish in the next few weeks
Volunteers needed for delivery and collection - please contact Andy Collins (572976).
A draft version of the plan will be presented at public consultation event in late March
Once the CDC and the local community are happy the NP will be put to a local referendum

The Neighbourhood Plan progress report
(article by Andy Collins published in the Winter Parish Newsletter)

Since I last wrote we have taken the plunge and started work on a Neighbourhood Plan (NP). The NP is registered with the Chichester District Council who are helping us with the consultation process. We have been awarded a small grant towards the cost of producing the plan and we have a working group in place who have now met several times since the summer. Consultation is the key requirement in producing an NP. To this end the working group have produced a questionnaire that will be distributed to every household within the boundary of the Parish in the next few weeks. The response from this will be used to draw up the basic plan.

Like the Parish Plan we will be hand delivering and collecting the questionnaire from each household and asking you all to please take part and complete this. If you would like to help with the delivery and collection please contact me, Andy Collins (572976).

We also need to consult with the various groups, businesses, clubs and societies in the community to make sure we have as broad a picture as possible. Please let me know if you run a business, group, club or society and we will include you in our consultation.

The draft version of the plan will be presented for comment at a public consultation event in late March. Please look out for the adverts for this event.

To produce the draft version, analysis of the responses in the returned questionnaires will be undertaken by the working group. The questionnaire is split into six sections which cover the basics of the NP.

However, these sections will not be used in isolation. When considering the responses in one section, they may also relate to other sections within the plan. Most of the questions have tick boxes allowing for easy data entry and further analysis when drafting the plan. We have avoided where we can the requirement for a written answer at this stage. This will happen during the consultation event where your opinions and ideas will be recorded and taken in to account in the plan.

After the consultation event the working group will finalise the plan ready for submittal to the District Council for review and comment. We may require another consultation event with the community to further refine the plan prior to submission. Once the CDC and the local community are happy the NP will be put to a local referendum for agreement by YOU the voters.

The Neighbourhood Plan (started 2013)
Introduction
The 2011 Localism Act introduced new rights and powers to allow local communities to shape new development by coming together to prepare neighbourhood plans.
A neighbourhood plan establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, such as where new homes should be built and what they should look like.
The plan can be detailed or general, depending on what local people want.
Neighbourhood plans allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, but the plans must still meet the needs of the wider area. This will mean that neighbourhood plans will have to take into account the local council’s assessment of housing and other development needs in the area.

Once a neighbourhood plan or order has been prepared, an independent examiner will check that it meets the right basic standards.
The local council will organise a referendum on any plan or order that meets the basic standards. This ensures that the community has the final say on whether a neighbourhood plan or order comes into force.
People living in the neighbourhood who are registered to vote in local elections will be entitled to vote in the referendum.
If more than 50% of people voting in the referendum support the plan or order, then the local planning authority must bring it into force.

Once a neighbourhood plan is in force following a successful referendum, it carries real legal weight. Decision makers are obliged to consider proposals for development in the neighbourhood against the neighbourhood plan.
Chidham and Hambrook Neighbourhood Plan
Questionnaire
In order to learn about the views of local residents a questionnaire is being drafted for circulation to every household in the parish. This will be delivered by hand, and collected, by volunteers. Target date for the start of distribution is Feb 1st.
It is hoped the Neighbourhood Plan will be finalised by the end of 2014
Posted
Jan 13
Volunteers are needed to deliver and collect the questionnaires. It is anticipated that each volunteer will take responsibility for delivering and collecting the questionnaire for 35 households.
