Eastergate has to find sites for 100 new homes to meet the housing allocation set by Arun DC.50 of these homes have been accounted for by the development at Brooks Nursery and some smaller infill development.The Neighbourhood Plan group is suggesting that the additional 50 homes should be sited on land north of Barnham Road near the medical centre.Nothing has been decided. The residents of Eastergate have to determine where these homes should be located.To help inform the debate the group has had some plans drawn up to show possible layouts. The designs allow for some allotments to be delivered within the site and for some elderly persons bungalows, both of which have been identified as local needs.
We need your views. Each plan is numbered. Please tell us if you prefer one or if you don’t agree with the proposals at all tell us where you think we could put 50 homes. Comments can be emailed to the Neighbourhood Plan team or posted to the Barnham Community Hall.
(with kind thanks to Scott Brownrigg for the plan layouts)
