Due to the Rottingdean Coastal ward by-election on 5 May, the consultation on establishing a Neighbourhood Forum and a Neighbourhood Area for West Saltdean has been suspended.
The consultation will recommence on Tuesday 10 May.
Under guidance on publicity restrictions that should be observed by local authorities during a pre-election period, the consultation should not have commenced on 26 April.
This was an oversight on our part for which we apologise.
Revised consultation timings
We plan to recommence the consultation for 6 weeks from 10 May until 21 June 2022. The consultation papers and information on how residents can take part will be republicised at that point to ensure that as many people as possible can give their views on the proposals.
Any consultation responses received to date will be carried forward and will not need to be re-submitted.
We will determine the application 13 September 2022.
