Feria Urbanism will be providing Chichester City Council with a neighbourhood plan training package.
Chichester City Council has recently embarked upon the production of a neighbourhood plan to guide the development of the city over the next decade or more. The plan will seek to positively address green spaces, heritage buildings and access and movement issues.
Our work will involve providing the client group with a better understanding of what a neighbourhood plan can and cannot do in terms of regulating the built environment and the statutory processes that need to be adhered to. We shall also provide skills support as they continue to manage their steering group together with mapping assistance as they undertake a strategic audit of the city.
Due to the restrictions on movement and social gatherings imposed during the Covid-19 public health crisis, much of this work is now being shifted to online platforms and video conferencing.
The Feria Urbanism team has been involved in other neighbourhood plans in a series of towns and villages including Loose, Hawkhurst, Lewes, Ticehurst, Staplehurst and Faversham. The team has also worked with a neighbourhood forum in Bristol. If you wish to know more about these other neighbourhood plan projects, please get in touch.
