Adur & Worthing Joint Statement of Community Involvement pdf icon PDF 432 KB

To consider a report by the Director for Place, attached as item 8.


The Planning Services Manager presented the report for Members to note and comment on.


Members made comments suggesting that the Section 106 should be included in the glossary and it should be given more prominence in Chapter 7 rather than one sentence. Members also questioned why Worthing had CIL and Adur did not.


It was also voiced that input from the community was an essential part of the planning service and should have been given greater emphasis.


Section 2.10 referred to ‘Hard to reach groups’. Members felt the term ‘seldom heard’ would be more favourable terminology. 


It was raised that on page 78, Shoreham Herald was mentioned with regards to local advertising and it was noted that this publication no longer existed.
