The latest draft plan is currently out for consultation – if you wish to comment you need to do so before June 17th. The good news for West Lavington is that it seems very unlikely that there will be any activity at Hawkhurst Farm.
‘West Sussex County Council and the South Downs National Park Authority have produced a draft Joint Minerals Local Plan. We are consulting on it for a nine-week period between Thursday 14 April and Friday 17 June 2016.
The draft Plan below sets out four key areas:
- a vision and strategic objectives for future mineral development in West Sussex
- 10 policies to achieve the strategic objectives for different mineral activities (Policies M1-M10)
- 15 policies to ensure no unacceptable harm to the environment and communities of West Sussex (Policies M12-M26)
- two mineral site allocations that will make an important contribution to meeting the need for minerals (Policy M11).’
