A key policy of the Southbourne Parish Neighbourhood Plan prepared by Oneill
Homer and adopted by Chichester District Council in December 2015 was the
‘Green Ring’, a long term green infrastructure project creating a spatial framework for future development giving improvements in connectivity, a stronger village identity, ecological enhancements and a range of new recreation spaces for the community.
Following adoption of the Neighbourhood Plan Oneill Homer has continued working with the parish on the delivery of the Green Ring through negotiations with land interests to create new public access, improvements to footpaths and bridleways, a tree nursery and community orchard and putting in place a delivery plan using CIL and other funding sources.
The Green Ring has safeguarded land for securing new strategic road access and land for railway crossings to serve the village as it continues to grow, addressing the existing connectivity problems for road traffic, pedestrians and school children.
