A VILLAGE’S future is waiting on feedback from residents on recommendations for its conservation area.
Chichester District Council is holding a public consultation on character appraisal and management proposals for the Tangmere conservation area.
Tangmere’s district councillor Simon Oakley urged residents to take a look at the proposals and provide feedback to the council by September 26.
“I’m certainly looking forward to hearing the comments on the conservation area review and the proposals in it,” he said, added it proposed some ‘significant changes’.
“It will form part of the evidence and documentation that goes with the neighbourhood plan.”
The character appraisal describes the historic core of Tangmere as ‘reasonably well preserved’.
“Aside from the pressure for further development, there are few obvious threats to its character,” it stated.
However, it highlighted a few ‘negative’ features to the conservation area, including poor-quality development.
Recommendations for the conservation area included looking at parking issues along Church Lane, particularly at peak times at St Andrew’s Church.
Copies of the draft appraisal documents are available at the district council offices at East Pallant House, 1 East Pallant, Chichester PO19 1TY.
