Previously developed land or existing Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment sites are also eligible for submission. Residents do not have to own a site to suggest it for development, but they will need to supply the council with the landowner’s details so that they can be contacted, and it is recommended that residents speak to the landowners before recommending a site.

The call started on June 21 and will continue until July 26. To find out more about how to submit a site for consideration, visit Arun District Council’s website.

Cllr Martin Lury, Chair of the Planning Policy Committee, said:

“We are particularly interested to know if you are planning to develop the land within the next five years or in the longer term, from April 2023. Any proposed sites will be considered for a multitude of uses which could help to boost the local area and the economy.”
