Thakeham Tiles Ltd., based at Rock Road, have begun the process of bringing-forward a planning proposal to relocate their business locally, and re-develop their existing site for housing. Further information about their proposals is provided in the notice below, which is being circulated this week to residents of Thakeham parish and other postcodes around the current site. A consultation event/exhibition has been organised to provide local people with the opportunity to view and comment on the emerging proposals. The event will be on Wednesday 18 April 2018, from 2.15pm to 7.30pm, in Thakeham Village Hall, Storrington Road, Thakeham, RH20 3EF
If you have any immediate queries please email email@example.com (not the Parish Council, which is not involved in this event).
At this stage the only comment that Thakeham PC would add is that the redevelopment of the Thakeham Tiles site has been long-signalled, and a specific policy in support of this (for ‘an appropriate number and type/size of dwellings’) is included (as Policy 2) in the Thakeham Neighbourhood Plan, endorsed by the community in March 2017. Having said that, the PC has yet to consider the specific detail of these proposals, or formulate any comments.
