Angmering (North)

The Arun Local Plan 2011-2031 identifies a number of ‘Strategic Allocations’ which are areas of land (sites) that have been identified to provide residential and commercial development to meet local housing and employment needs throughout the plan period (2011-2031).

The Arun Local Plan 2011-2031 identifies the Angmering North strategic allocation under policy H SP2c (SD9) as delivering at least 800 dwellings over the plan period. It is also a requirement for the strategic allocation to provide enhancements to the existing library, education, road and healthcare facilities. The allocation is situated in close proximity to the South Downs National Park and as such landscaping will need to be designed to protect the special qualities of the South Downs National Park.

The Strategic allocation consists of three parcels of land with ‘Land to the west of Dappers Lane’, ‘Land South of Water Lane’ and ‘Land to the North of Water Lane’.  


Progress of Infrastructure provision within the Strategic Site or in Arun as a whole can be found in the Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS)

The aim of this statement is to provide an update on all matters regarding developer contributions (Section 106 (S.106) and Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)) during the previous financial year.

Our first IFS was published in September 2020 to cover the period from April 2019 to 31st March 2020.  Please view our current IFS here: Infrastructure Funding Statement and Developer contributions | Arun District Council

The council collects all CIL contributions for all types of Infrastructure (from 1st April 2020) but it does not generally collect S.106 contributions for the provision of schools, highways, libraries or the fire service (although, in some cases S.106 for these items are retained for these projects, in agreement with the county council).  In most cases, these items are the responsibility of West Sussex County Council (WSCC).  Therefore our IFS should be read in conjunction with the WSCC IFS to identify how S.106 from specific development sites have been spent across the board.   

Please view the current WSCC IFS here: Section 106: Planning obligations - West Sussex County Council
