Angmering Village Life
At the meeting of Arun District Council's Development Control Committee yesterday (Thursday), Angmering Community Land Trust (ACLT) was granted permission to construct 12 affordable dwellings on the land they own on the southern side of Mayflower Way (off Roundstone Lane). They will be rental properties and will comprise of 6 x 3 Bed, 3 x 2 Bed and 3 x 1 Bed dwellings. The land was aquired from Angmering Parish Council earlier this year for a nominal £1.
The Board of Directors of ACLT are currently negotiating with a developer in an attempt to agree contracting requirements. It is hoped construction will commence in 2019.
ACLT is a Society registered with the Financial Conduct Authority under the Cooperative & Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. It was formed for the benefit of the community to operate as a not-for-profit community-based organisation that develops housing or other assets at permanently affordable levels for long-term community benefit. ACLT hope to acquire more land in the future so that affordable housing and other initiatives can be progressed for the benefit of the community.

At Arun's Development Control Committee meeting last week, the proposed M & S Food store along the Rustington By-pass (A259) was given full planning permission together with outline planning permission for a Toby Carvery on its west side. Both these developments are immediately to the west of the Aldi superstore on the east side of Brook Lane and in the parish of Angmering.
The approvals were given despite going against the recommendation of Arun's Planning Department to refuse permission on the grounds that the store failed the sequential test a planning principle that looks to develop certain types of location before others, such as placing shops in the town centre before looking at out-of-town sites. Some councillors believed that the M & S store should move into the empty store in the centre of Littlehampton, previously occupied by Waitrose.
The vote was split 6-6, leaving the committee chairman, Cllr Ricky Bower, to make the final decision.
Angmering Medical Centre has announced that, due to unforeseen circumstances, it has been necessary to cancel the Flu Clinic on Saturday 6 October at the Angmering Medical Centre. They have advised patients to contact the Receptionist to re-book an appointment.
