Bepton residents have been expressing their strong views against the proposals to extract sand at The Severals in the joint West Sussex County Council (WSCC) and South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) Minerals Sites Study which was published last month.
The closing date for comments is 22nd September and it is important that WSCC and SDNPA hear individual views as well as those of the Parish Council. There is a link to the relevant documents and response form here.
The Parish Council’s views were in the previous post on this website and in the letter which was circulated recently to every house in Bepton. Because the next meeting of the Parish Council is not until 25th September (at the Park House, Bepton at 7pm), we have obtained an extension to the deadline for our formal comments. This is a public meeting and we would encourage Bepton residents to attend, particularly if you are concerned about the proposals.
