2 Neighbourhood Plan Upper Beeding Parish is 7.25 square miles (4637 acres) in size. The main settlements are Upper Beeding, Small Dole and Edburton. Only 8% of the area of the Parish is built upon. The settlements of Upper Beeding Parish date back many centuries. The traditional construction has been of knapped flint with mortar and some brickwork and tiled roofs. A modest amount of new housing was built in the first half of the century. In the 1960s and 1970s there was a large amount of house building on the Manor Farm Estate, Saltings Way and others. These buildings were out of character with the traditional buildings and were placed in high density with relatively narrow roads. Population is 3,763, (1828 male / 1935 female), 17% (626) aged between 0-14 years. 85% (3,186) are in good health. The Parish has 4 Pubs, 3 Churches, 2 Schools, 12 Shops, 3 Industrial Estates, 3 Mobile Home Sites, 1 Travellers Site, 1,576 Dwellings, 1 Nursing Home, 1 P/T Doctor’s Surgery, 2POs and 25 Retirement/Sheltered Housing Flats.

5 Neighbourhood Plan Housing Spread over the Parish

6 Neighbourhood Plan Key Observations from 2011 Census The Parish has an ageing population and may be attracting 65 years year olds have increased since 2001 Only one Retirement Home (under construction ) and 1 Nursing Home in the Parish. If the current teenage population want to stay in the Parish in the next 10 years, we will not have enough accommodation to support them Car ownership has increased and any new housing proposals have to accommodate adequate car parking spaces to the proportions of the property. Nearly half of those working (2806), travel to work by car/van. Rental accommodation has increased. Is this because housing is not affordable? There are 161 dwellings which are classed as a second home. Less people in the Parish since Could some elderly release stock/their houses for small families or others to use Car levels per household of 4 or more cars have vastly increased. (87) Combination of young & old over next 20 years indicates a housing shortage to come Decline of year olds compared to Properties overall have increased in the Villages over last 10 years

7 Neighbourhood Plan Planning Our Own Neighbourhood Residents have had little say in how they want their communities to grow or change. The Localism Act changed the Planning System and gives local people more control. ‘Neighbourhood Planning’ might not get you fired up but what these changes in practice mean is that, together with others in our area, we can make things happen: Get better bus routes Create a community green space or orchard Design affordable housing for the area Run a local enterprise, like a shop, pub or even cinema Take a local service into our own hands, such as the recycling collection. Why bother? To improve the quality of the places we live and work in. To produce a vision for the future. We should decide what happens in our community. It’s something communities have been doing for thousands of years. The process can be fun! You’ll get to meet new people and discover hidden talents
