At its meeting of Monday 23rd March, Thakeham Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Planning Committee agreed again to strongly object to Abingworth Homes’ amended proposals to increase house numbers in the final phase 3 of the Abingworth Meadows development. The proposals involved relatively small revisions to DC/19/1707, previously considered in September 2019, and now sought to raise house numbers in the phase 3 area to 75 units – an increase of 50 on the currently consented 25 houses in this phase.
The reasons why the PC has taken this position are set out in detail in the formal response to Horsham District Planners which can be read below. The Parish Council is not itself a planning authority and the proposals will now be decided by Horsham District Council in due course.
We will keep residents updated with regard to further developments.
