There are major concerns about the negative impacts of housing over-development around the Chichester Harbour and coastal rural villages. These include climate change, flooding, air and water concerns and threats to wildlife. Housing overdevelopment doesn’t just affect the local countryside, it has wide-reaching impacts including the environment, road risks, transport, schools, health, jobs, heritage and culture. We do need new houses to help the area prosper but, to date, new houses have not been affordable enough or of the right type, size and location for residents of the local villages they're being built in. We're campaigning NOW to make our voice heard to everyone at Council and national level. We want to ensure we can secure the right new houses and safeguard future enjoyment of Chichester Harbour, views and access to the South Downs and peaceful South Coast village life.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We’re campaigning to talk to and persuade everyone that has an interest in housing over-development to challenge the UK Government and Chichester District Council’s assertion that we need 12,0500 new houses in the Chichester area. All the latest government data says we need far less housing overall, and developers also aren't building the right type of housing that meets local needs. We are campaigning to get all those with influence to understand the drastic effects too much housing has in Chichester District, and to convince them there are better ways to provide homes to meet future local need.
Steps to get it done:
We have a campaign team in place and all of the skills to deliver our message at local and national level. Your funding will help us campaign more effectively to ensure the voice of Chichester area residents is heard by all those who have a say in future homes.
