Rustington development

I welcome Arun District Council’s decision to reject the construction of 191 new homes on a Golf Course at Rustington Golf Centre in Angmering.   I support the Council's findings which rightly refused planning permission on well founded grounds.  These concerns ought to be heeded by the planning inspectorate deciding the appeal and I encourage everyone affected to make representations to ensure that local voices are heard clearly as part of this process.

I wrote to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities, Local Government, and Levelling Up to ask him to reject an appeal by the developer seeking to overturn the local authority’s decision to refuse planning permission.

My main concerns relate to the large scale of the developments and its’ impact on the character of the locality, the environment and road safety concerns — echoing the concerns of Arun District Council.


The appeal to the Secretary of State against Arun District Council’s decision to refuse planning permission will be decided on the basis of a public inquiry. 

I encourage all residents and stakeholders to make their voices and concerns heard by 29 June 2022 at
