House proposals in Southwick

An  extract from the DRAFT Minutes of the meeting of Southwick Parish Council held in the Village Hall, Southwick at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 19 April 2016

1217e.         Councillors noted that there had been very strong representations from the public in respect of possible housing development s by Redrow Homes in the village during the Public Open Forum and that the public were opposed to such developments. 

The Chairman stated that the Parish Council had informed Wiltshire Council, in response to a recent consultation, that ‘Southwick Parish Council is against any further development and does not support any of the proposed SHLAA sites’.

Planning Matters

'A Developer/Agent had requested a confidential meeting with the Parish Council to discuss possible housing development in Southwick. The reply to the developer was thus:

It is contrary to the public interest to hold such a meeting and, if held, could attract unwelcome criticism of the Parish Council.
A Parish Council meeting must be open to the public and the public can only be excluded by a resolution if publicity would prejudice the public interest by reason of the confidential nature of the business. The Parish Council does not believe that discussion of a possible housing development in the Parish falls into this latter category – terms of tenders, preparation of cases in legal proceedings are examples where the public interest could be prejudiced and the need for confidentiality to be protected.
The Parish Council could also be prejudiced at such a meeting by offering a view when the public has not had an opportunity to comment and no planning application has been submitted.
In view of the above the Parish Council will not arrange a confidential meeting with you.'
