Horsham District  Local Plan 2019-36 Public consultation (Reg 18)

The consultation on the Horsham District Local Plan which includes making Adversane and sites to the West and East of Billingshurst strategic housing sites closed on 30th March.  The nominated sites were for 3,500 units and a total of 3,200 houses respectively.  Our recently elected MP Andrew Griffith (Arundel & South Downs) wrote a letter objecting to 3 such sites including Adversane, Mayfield and Buck Barn, West Grinstead.   The Adversane proposal would lead to a population larger than the village of Wisborough Green and in an area lacking key infrastructure.

UKOG Applications

Applications have been made for Fossil fuels by UKOG including a 3rd extension at Broadford Bridge or new drilling wells at Loxley aka Dunsfold and on the Isle of Wight at Arreton.  Planning authorities have been given the authority to decide as to how these decisions will be made.  So, watch out for announcements by WSCC, Surrey CC and the Isle of Wight as to how these decisions will be taken.  It is, of course, imperative, in order to comply with UK law and the government’s intention to reduce emissions, that these do not go ahead.

Trust you are all keeping warm, well and safe.
