Pagham South Strategic Sites


pagham pagham

The Arun Local Plan 2011-2031 identifies the Pagham South strategic allocation under policy H SP2a (SD1) as delivering at least 400 dwellings over the plan period.

There are two strategic allocations identified in Pagham 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 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.

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