Planning Information

The Planning Consultative Panel of Rottingdean Parish Council 

The Planning Comsultative Group of Rottingdean Parish Council (RPC) receives a copy of all planning applications made for sites in the Parish, and may make comments on behalf of the Parish. These are recorded in the minutes of the monthly Council meetings. The Panel is available at the Whiteway Centre to discuss any local planning issues or applications between 7pm and 7.30pm on the first Monday of each month (apart from Bank Holidays). If any resident would like to express their views, either in writing or in person, on a specific planning application then please contact the Parish Clerk.

Brighton & Hove City Council remain the 'Local Planning Authority' with reponsibility for deciding applications.

Should an application attract opposition from neighbouring dwellings, pressure can be brought to bear on the City’s planners if five or more separate letters are sent to BHCC. This ensures that an application is decided by elected Ward Councillors for B&H rather than a decision made by planning officers in the Planning Department. If residents comments are also copied to the Parish Council Planning Consultative Group, through the Parish Clerk, these will be considered as part of any submission RPC may make on behalf of the Village.

City Plan Part 2 consultation  

The Parish Council discussed the consultation at the November 2020 Council meeting. After consideration of the fairly limited critrea for comments set out in the guidance, it was agreed that the Parish Council would comment on planning conditions provided in the plan on the development of the site around the A259 and B2123 junction and signal a concern that no mitigating measures were suggested to avoid further road congestion. It was agreed that the Parish Council should submit that the conditions on development around this site should inlcude a condition that no adverse impact on traffic congestion would result.   The following comment was submitted via the online portal on 27 October 2020.

SSA7:  RPC welcomes note d) in this policy but remains concerned that no mitigating measures are proposed here in relation to the inevitable impact of this major development on the A259 and B2123. We submit the following amendment to note d:

d) Sustainable transport infrastructure will be required to support proposals and to ensure that there is no adverse impact on air quality and/or congestion”
