Worthing Journal – September Article

The Worthing Society Committee are working hard to protect our heritage. As Planning Consultees we are regularly  commenting on planning applications affecting our listed buildings and conservation areas.  We shall also monitor the suitability of plans  for the larger scheme in Union Place.

Our green spaces are part of our ‘heritage legacy’ also need our protection. We were thrilled when the Appeal Court dismissed the Appeal by Persimmon at Chatsmore Farm, Goring Gap. However, ‘hot on the heels’ of this judgement another developer has appealed against  the refusal  by Arun Council to allow 70 houses on the Lansdowne Nurseries  site also on the  Littlehampton Road. If allowed this will also have a negative impact on the infrastructure, traffic and setting of the National Park.  The Society will support neighbouring groups in Ferring by making a further representation to the Planning Inspectorate to protect our environment .

The Worthing Society welcomes new members of all ages. Our next Quarterly Members Meeting will be at 7.30pm on September 26th at the Worthing Library Lecture Theatre. Our Speaker will be James Sainsbury, Curator-Archaeology, Worthing Museum on “John Pull & Worthing’s Stoneage Revolution.’ Visitors & Guests are welcome to attend the lectures-fee £3. We hope to see you there.
