The exhibition will also see the unveiling of the results of two town council projects to support the NP. Residents will get the chance to see revised proposals for the Market Square, aimed to address pedestrian safety and traffic issues. Also a master plan showing what future housing development might look like, will be revealed.

NP chairman Douglas Cooper said the draft plan set out policies for future housing in Petworth along with an overview of services, infrastructure and employment. “This is a critical stage in the process and we urge everyone to come along – your feedback is vital.”

Lynnette Humphry speaking on behalf of the Petworth Residents Networking Group is also urging people to attend the event ton Friday: “Due to planning permissions in the last two years Petworth does not have to take 150 houses in its NP. Please go along, look at the housing plans and if you have concerns, ask questions,” she urged people.
