Urban extension secured after council agrees objections have been resolved

In advance of a public inquiry a west Sussex local authority agreed that its objection on the grounds of prematurity should be withdrawn, and highway issues were resolved, thereby no outstanding objections remained.

The scheme, involving a large flat piece of agricultural land, included the development of up to 300 dwellings, a community building and a small retail store together with open space and ancillary works. A major improvement to an existing roundabout was planned and it was agreed between the parties that this would improve the position over the current situation. It accorded with all aspects of the development plan and consequently the NPPF advised that permission should be granted without delay.
