Draft Horsham District Local Plan 2019-2036 Economic Development (Key Questions) Economic Development - Key Issues

While a 63% increase in the number of homes in Ashington is strategic in scale, no additional local employment is mentioned in the Plan. This inevitably will lead to a larger commuter village than we have already, lacking in sustainable transport options. This is not consistent with climate change objectives.

Housing numbers: no evidence is provided of engagement with Ashington over the increased number of homes proposed, compared with the number in the Neighbourhood Plan which was drawn up after extensive consultation within the village. The number of proposed additional new homes is disproportionate in scale for a medium village with limited facilities. There see to be no plans included to improve services and facilities such as the school.

Ashington has limited to poor existing infrastructure for its current size. The Reg 18 Plan details no proposals to improve it for Ashington. Public transport links are currently poor and there are no plans to improve them. This will lead to increased dependence on private cars. There is currently no Doctors' Surgery or Health Centre in Ashington, and very limited food and other shopping facilities.

As regards the Plan for Ashington and the number of homes proposed (see chapter 6) it is not sustainable or consistent with low carbon objectives since the expansion will significantly increase the number of private cars used from the village. As a general point, the consultation exercise for the Ashington Neighbourhood Plan was extensive but that for the Reg 18 Plan has been insufficient. This on-line system is not user-friendly for many people.

As regards Ashington, where my husband and I live, the Reg 18 plan does not meet The Vision because no evidence or likelihood of improvements to services and facilities is provided, Further no sustainable transport options are mentioned and there is no detailed infrastructure delivery plan for the village.
