10 new homes

New housing proposed on Monk's Hill 

10 new homes are proposed for land west of Monk's Hill in Westbourne. You can see the full planning application and how to submit your comments to Chichester District Council here.  

Westbourne's Neighbourhood Plan was written to protect the village from future inappropriate development, but we're unable to prevent all new housing and Chichester District Council's Local Plan has set out that 30 new homes should be built in Westbourne over the next few years. The land at Monk's Hill was identified in the Neighbourhood Plan as a possible location for a small-scale development to help meet this target. By identifying the best possible sites, we hope to minimise the impact of new housing in the Parish. 

Our Planning Committee will be considering the application on Thursday 14 July at 6.15pm at The Meeting Place, North Street, Westbourne. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
