ABOUT US

We are all residents of the Manhood Peninsula

Joan Foster, brought together all eleven parishes on the Manhood Peninsula, in 2019, to protest to the Chichester MP, Gillian Keegan, about the housing allocation in the Chichester Local Plan Review 2016 - 2035. This was for 1,933 houses on the Peninsula by 2035.

This was followed by a meeting with Gillian Keegan in January 2020. Sadly, no action has resulted and we are still faced with the same problems.

Joan formed the Manhood Peninsula Action Group to continue to campaign to protect the Manhood Peninsula, this website describes their work and how you can help us

March for Manhood
  • Government needs to change its housing algorithm as this area is full.
  • Southern Water needs to clean up its act to stop further degradation of
  • Chichester and Pagham Harbours.
  • Chichester District Council needs to accept that the A27 is at gridlock. Tinkering with the roundabouts, with no right turns from the south, will result in Chichester being at gridlock as well.
  • Climate change means sea levels are rising. The Manhood Peninsula needs protection and conservation as a flood plain serving the South Downs.

OUR PROBLEM

What's the problem?

In 2019 Chichester District Council wanted 1,933 houses built on the Manhood Peninsula by 2035. Now in 2022 that number has increased to 3,999!

The Government White Paper - Planning for the Future - August 2020 has a centralised algorithm to allocate the number of houses to be built across the country. Chichester can only build on 30% of the district, but the algorithm is for 100%

Currently about 25,000 people live on the Manhood Peninsula. In the summer this figure doubles.

Build, build, build is the slogan - potentially another 11,200 houses across Chichester District.

HELP US

Over the last two years the Manhood Peninsula Action Group (MPAG) has been campaigning to protect the Manhood Peninsula from over-development. With no Local Plan, we are very vulnerable and we see more and more housing applications being submitted. Until Chichester District Council has a Local Plan now due in 2023 (was due in 2019), we have no protection from developers.
