Arun - Change to Local Plan
What is planned?
Arun District Council
Arun District Council adopted its current Local Plan in July 2018. Following a
resolution at Full Council in January 2020, a decision was made to commence an update of the Local Plan – however, this was paused in 2021 which was maintained in 2022. Planning Policy Committee will recommend to Full Council (19 July) that the pause be lifted following a decision at Planning Policy Committee on 8 June.
Nevertheless, the Council has an annual call for sites which it can use to gain intelligence about land availability and assess its suitability for a range of future development and infrastructure needs which can inform plan making when this resumes.
To help this process we are undertaking an updated ‘Call for Sites’ to assess the amount of potential land availability for the District to meet future needs.
Please note the call for sites for this year includes a greater range of uses other than housing and employment uses for future plan making.
The 'Call for Sites' is the opportunity for individuals, organisations, community groups, landowners or developers to suggest sites within the District for development e.g. up to 20 to 30 years. The site suggestions received by us will be assessed and may be considered if appropriate, for future plan making.
We are interested in receiving submissions for land (including any previously developed land and existing HELAA Sites) that may have the potential for development for:
Housing (sites of 5 or more additional new dwellings)
Economic Development (sites of 0.25 hectares or above or able to provide
500 sqm or above of additional floor space)
Gypsy & Traveller Sites
Custom & Self-Build Housing
Leisure and Tourism
Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG)
Blue/Green Infrastructure (e.g., rewilding; natural flood mitigation; renewable and decentralised energy)
You are requested to respond to the Council no later than 26th July 2023.
Further information regarding the ‘call for sites’ process and how to submit a site can be found on the Council’s website and a site can be submitted by using the Call for Sites E-Form: https://www.arun.gov.uk/helaa-brownfield-land-self-build-registers
