Major Development at Ford Airfield Site

Details of the proposed alterations to Ford Market have been revealed as plans for a major new development at the airfield were submitted to Arun District Council ( see planning application F/4/20/OUT).

The development is to be called “The Landings”

The Outline Planning Application is for the development of up to 1,500 dwellings, 60 bed care home, up to 9,000 sqm of employment floorspace, local centre of up to 2,350sqm including up to 900sqm retail/commercial and 1,450sqm community/leisure floorspace, land for a two-form entry primary school, public open space, allotments, new sports pitches and associated facilities, drainage, parking and associated access, infrastructure, landscape, ancillary and site preparation works, including demolition of existing buildings and part removal of existing runway hardstanding.  The application affects a Public Right of Way.

The Development control committee of the Parish Council will be discussing this planning application as to any comments it wishes to make.  The additional traffic onto the A259 will be a concern.
