Hunston Parish Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Plan that will set out the local planning policy for the village.  This will be your plan – now you can have your say.  We look forward to working with the community as we set the framework for our future. Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their village and to help them deliver the sustainable development they need. Neighbourhood plans contain policies and proposals that will be used in decisions on planning applications. They provide a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community. Our neighbourhood plan will need to be in conformity with Chichester District Council planning policies but will have the scope to add local detail so that planning decisions reflect Hunston’s individuality.

The community is at the heart of the Neighbourhood Plan– the plan will be grounded in extensive public consultation. We will hold a wide range of events and provide many opportunities to learn your views. The neighbourhood plan will only be adopted following a successful referendum where a majority vote is needed.

You will find a range of information on the Neighbourhood Plan in the links below. We welcome anyone who is interested in joining the Neighbourhood Plan Working Party. For further information please contact the Parish Council on 01243 789039 or via email
