The Steering Group has recently published the Strategic Environmental Assessment prepared by
consultants AECOM into the environmental impact of future housing development covering air quality, biodiversity, climate change and transportation. The report will be used in the Neighbourhood Plan to make informed decisions on any future developments and has been sent to Natural and Historic England, the Environment Agency and the South Downs National Park Authority (also available on our website).

Additionally, the Steering Group were fortunate to secure the work of students from the University of Brighton who undertook to study the impact of other elements relating to further building development such as history, town centre, the economy, planning policy context, demographic issues around employment and health; a lot of analysis has been done and some of these reports are available on the documents page of the website. This work was completed at no cost and has been an invaluable input to the Neighbourhood Plan.
