The Parish of Amberley, located entirely within the South Downs National Park, has around 300 households and a population of approximately 600. It is an elongated parish comprising four settlements, linked by stretches of country road: North Stoke; Houghton Bridge; the village of Amberley itself, and finally, the settlement known as Crossgates.

Amberley's Neighbourhood Plan sets out a vision for the area that reflects the thoughts and feelings of local people with a real interest in their community. The Plan sets objectives on key identified themes such as housing, getting around, business, tourism, community, leisure and well- being, the environment and design quality of physical structures. It builds on current and future planned activity and says what the Parish Council and its partners will work towards.
