AREA Supporters’ Newsletter October 3, 2019

Dear Supporters,

We seem to be going through a quiet patch, waiting for replies on a number of fronts.

  • Getting the particulate monitors we purchased operational. Then we can get them out to residents.
  • We have sent a Freedom of Information request to the office of the Secretary of State requesting a copy of the reasons why New Monks Farm was not called in. They responded, asking for another month to look at it as it was a complicated development. We found that strange as, if it was looked at in detail by the Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, then all the information should have been to hand.

FUTURE EVENTS

  • AREA OPEN MEETING – Friday November 8, 7pm at the Coop community space, opposite the main Coop in Shoreham.  Your chance to ask questions and put forward ideas.
  • CLIMATE CHANGE SUMMIT – Saturday, October 5 from 10 until 4 at the Ropetackle. There is a wide range of speakers – Committee on Climate Change – sustainability in the Orkneys – the Green Alliance and Peter Owen Jones discussing what  we can do to protect the environment. More information at shorehamwordfest.com   Tickets for the day are £20.

We are liaising with the residents of West St in Shoreham who are concerned about the traffic and resulting air pollution resulting from West St being used as a rat run.

We have written to Focus about the parking situation.

IKEA – There is still no word about the S106 agreements  (money)  from NMF for education , police etc. or about the ownership of a strip of land need for the magic roundabout for IKEA.
