Bosham Parish Council












Site Allocation Development Plan Document (DPD) - Consultation on Proposed Main and Minor Modifications


A series of hearing sessions were held in September 2017 by the independent Inspector, Roisin Barrett Bsc Msc Dip UD Dip Hist Cons MRTPI IHBC, undertaking the examination of the Site Allocation Development Plan Document (DPD).


As a result of these hearings the Council is now carrying out a period of public consultation on the proposed main modifications it considers are required to make the DPD 'sound'.


In addition, the Council is also publishing a set of proposed minor modifications, including various changes for updating purposes and other minor amendments that do not go to the heart of the DPD, for the same period of public consultation.


It is important to note that this consultation does not provide an opportunity to raise other matters which should have been raised during the earlier rounds of public consultation and/or may relate to other aspects of the DPD.


Copies of the Schedules of Proposed Main and Minor Modifications to the DPD, along with the Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment, can be viewed at the Council offices, Selsey Area Office, and Chichester Library or on the Council's website


The consultation on the proposed main and minor modifications will run for six weeks from 1 February 2018 until 5.00pm on 16 March 2018.


Anyone wishing to submit representations on any of the proposed modifications should do so either by email to or in writing to Planning Policy, East Pallant House, 1 East Pallant, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1TY.











Spring plans

The bulbs continue to poke their heads through and we are planning our activities for 2018.  This will include extending our clearing and planting to the West side of Brooks Lane (and we hope to work with Hyde Homes on this) and we have just ordered another batch of Primroses and snowdrops to flesh out the existing. We have further saplings to plant, courtesy of the Woodland Trust.


Saturday 17 Feb Weeding/planting morning

All this means we have another weeding and planting session coming up. We hope that as many of you as can will be with us on Saturday 17 February (at 10am; meet at post box at end of Brooks Lane) for an hour. Please bring gloves, kneelers, a trowel or hand fork & a bin liner for weeds.
