Have your say

AN APPEAL against a council’s decision to turn down two gypsy pitches is set to be held next week.

The hearing takes place at the Assembly Rooms, in North Street, Chichester, at 9.30am on Wednesday.

James Merriman is appealing a decision to turn down plans for land near Nutbourne Park, in Main Road, Nutbourne, near Emsworth.

Councillors had said the plans were in Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Chichester to Emsworth strategic gap.
