Pagham North Strategic Sites


pagham north

The Arun Local Plan 2011-2031 identifies the Pagham South strategic allocation under policy H SP2a (SD2) as delivering at least 800 dwellings over the plan period.

There are two strategic allocations identified in Pagham (North and South) and these strategic allocations will collectively deliver at least 1,200 dwellings over the Local Plan period (2011-2031).

The strategic allocations, alongside the residential development of the sites will need to deliver a new primary school, care home facilities, a community hub, a Tier 7 library facility, land to accommodate a new Scout hut and Ambulance Community Response post. Financial contributions will also need to be secured towards healthcare facilities, play areas, sports facilities, public open space, drainage, landscaping, highway mitigation and cycle paths. These contributions and facilities are necessary in order to mitigate the impact of the strategic allocation upon existing infrastructure and facilities.


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.

Below is the latest news concerning the development of the Pagham North strategic allocation as well as links to relevant documents. The Council will continually monitor these pages to seek and provide the latest information concerning the development of these sites.
