Ford Neighbourhood Plan

The Ford Neighbourhood Plan started in May 2013. The Parish Council wants the people of Ford to have a say in all aspects of the future of the village, but more importantly wanted local people to decide what changes should occur, rather than leaving such decisions to Arun District Council.

Ford’s Neighbourhood Plan sets out a vision for the area that reflects the thoughts and feelings of local people with a real interest in their community. The Plan sets objectives on key identified themes such as housing, getting around, business, tourism, community, leisure and well-being, the environment and design quality of physical structures. It builds on current and future planned activity and says what the Parish Council and its partners will work towards.

The Neighbourhood Plan has been awarded a grant to help with the work needed to produce a Plan for which we are grateful to the Community Development Foundation.
