Comments on Draft Neighbourhood Plan
Jun 19 all-day

At last we have some news for you regarding the Henfield Neighbourhood Plan (HNP).

After significant delay we were able to produce a draft Pre-Submission plan which we sent to Horsham District Council (HDC) on 29 March for a Health Check. As the delay had arisen at Horsham they offered to waive the Health Check but my colleagues and I felt that for the best chance of the plan proceeding without challenge was to subject it to scrutiny at this stage.

That part of the process took seven weeks and comments were provided  to us on 17 May. We have assessed these comments and have finalised our Pre- Submission Plan which is now out for consultation throughout the Designated Plan Area, which in this case is the whole of Henfield Parish including that part of Small Dole that falls within the Parish.

Ideally I would have liked to have told you this news a month earlier but as the programme was reliant on other parties, this could not be done with certainty.

A good deal of the evidence base that underpins our plan, including the six Focus Group Reports, The State of the Parish Report, The Revised Parish Design Statement, the Sustainability Appraisal/Strategic Environmental Assessment, the AECOM Housing Needs Assessment, the Site Assessment Report and the report of the Site Assessment Open Days  has been made available  electronically on the Hub, the Parish Council, BN5 Magazine and Horsham District Council websites. Hard copies of the plan will be available for examination (but not for removal), at the Parish Office, the Library, the Medical Centre and other venues in Henfield and Small Dole which are advertised on posters around the villages – please look out for them.  A summary of the plan will also be available for people at these venues and at for people to take away.  A response form will be available in both electronic form and hard copy. Please take the opportunity to respond to the consultation, which goes on from the 7 of June  until the 19 of July, as it is your plan.

The Bisshop Family, Museum Talk @ Garden Room, Henfield Hall
Jun 20 @ 7:30 pm

As part of Horsham District’s Year of Culture , Robert Gordon, chairman of the Friends of Henfield Museum will give a talk about The Bishopp Family of Henfield & Parham – By Various Adventures & Many Crises. All proceeds to the Friends.

Take a tour through the history of one of Henfield’s most fascinating families…

Beginning in the early 16th century with the rise, election to parliament and arrival at Parsonage House in Henfield of Thomas Byshopp Esquire, the tale moves on to the purchase of and beginning of the family association with Parham House by his son Sir Thomas Bishopp, first to hold the newly created Parham baronetcy.
The tale continues with the resistance and capture of his son Sir Edward Bishopp at Arundel Castle during the Civil War and the dramatic transatlantic escape to Virginia Colony of his brother Colonel Henry Bishopp of Henfield fame – later to become first Postmaster General on the Restoration.

Discover who in the family was responsible for a notorious London murder and how Henry’s sister Elizabeth left a legacy that contributes to Henfield to this day.
