Thank you to the 100+ villagers who attended this meeting. The key piece of information that we are have become aware of is the
pre planning application made by Brighton & Hove City Council to the South Downs National Park Authority to move the farm. The reasons given in the pre planning application are all about the need to move it because of the plans to develop the land on which it sits!!! 

You can view the application here https://planningpublicaccess.southdowns.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=PXZCC0TU0P000

ORPS will be communicating further with the village on next steps


A very warm welcome to the Ovingdean Village community website. If you’re a resident, you’ll find news and information about the many societies and groups in the village, as well as details of upcoming events and a forum for discussing local issues. For visitors to the area, there’s a wealth of information on things to see and do and a gallery of images submitted by local people to give you a flavour of just what it’s like to live in our beautiful semi-rural village nestling between the South Downs National Park and the English Channel. I do hope you find the website useful – I look forward to receiving your contributions and suggestions of how the site might develop and serve the community.
