I have pledged my support to the Long Live the Local Campaign to help pubs in East Worthing and Shoreham keep their doors open, joining more than 100,000 people who have signed the petition so far, including 224 in East Worthing and Shoreham.
I was obviously disappointed that the Adur Planning Committee saw fit to approve the New Monks farm planning application not least when so many questions remain about the sustainability of siting IKEA on the busiest road in the area.
Delighted to attend the launch of Worthing’s Mental Health Awareness Week yesterday, where I was joined by local cadets for special presentation on mental health and veterans #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
I am very disappointed that the Adur Planning Committee last night caved into the enormous pressure they had been under to approve the plans for New Monks Farm and particularly the inclusion of IKEA, which can only impact hugely on the heavily congested A27.

I was delighted to see that Coastal West Sussex Partnership were announced as one of the 16 been successful 'Fast Track' projects set to receive a share of £6million Coastal Communities Fund money to help deliver sustainable growth and jobs across the Great British Coast.
