Important Update

Click here for the Examiners Report

" At a meeting to discuss the Examiners Report, Horsham District Council (HDC) outlined the position - this is their plan and they very much want to work with Slinfold Parish Council. There are 3 options:

1 Accept plan modifications, as is, and go to referendum.

2 Scrap the whole plan

3 Accept some but not all the modifications (Preferred option)

HDC is prepared to make changes but as a rule wanted to try and accept as many of the examiners recommendations as possible, otherwise the Plan might have to be re-examined with the risk a new examiner doesn't pass it.

In summary, the main issues are:

1 HDC do want to see numbers for sites. They will word numbers as "at least..." which gives a 10% tolerance

2 They want us to review the allocation on Hayes Lane as 15 is too low and we should review our rationale.

3 They do support the Examiners suggestion to remove the scout hut from Crosby farm. They do recommend we strengthen "The Cobblers" to include the scout hut explicitly.

4 They support the removal of end of West Way as a site and the consequent removal of the Central fields as Local Green Space. They will reference in their explanations that Central Fields will be picked up in a forthcoming Conservation Area review and they have prioritised Slinfold.

The process hereon is HDC publishes its explanation of the modifications and holds another 6 week consultation. Then, 5 weeks later they make their decision to either go to referendum or go for re-examination. "
