On 21 July 2021 Arun District Council Planning Committee approved the Outline Planning Application for the development off Ford Road.
At the ADC Planning meeting there were four in person presentations: two in favour from Guy Dixon (Savills, advisors to Norfolk Estate) and Darrell Gale (Arundel CLT Chair) and two against from Alison Wilkinson and Drew Scrimgeour. There was a statement from Arundel Town Council supporting the plans in light of the 2019 Neighbourhood Plan Review.
After these statements, ADC Councillors briefly debated the plans. Points were made about this being a greenfield site and concerns that other fields would then be built upon. Other councillors spoke about how exciting these plans were, not least because of the involvement of ACLT and the level of affordable housing. Many speakers referred to road and public transport issues.
