Examination of The Mid Sussex Local Plan I

Five LAMBS, two shepherds
Both Nick Herbert MP and Sir Nicholas Soames MP will be attending the meeting in Haywards Heath this Friday, January 13th.

Sir Nicolas Soames recently noted in Parliament:

The hon. Friend the Minister knows of the infamous application by Mayfield Market Towns to build a completely unwanted new settlement to the south of my constituency and partially in the constituency of my right hon. Friend the Member for Arundel and South Downs [Nick Herbert]. It has been turned down time after time. No one wants it and it is not in any plan, yet the builders continue to chip away at the fabric, integrity and credibility of the plans.

The West Sussex County Times reports:

Robert Worsley, who refused to sell his 550 acres in Twineham to Mayfield Market Towns, is due to .. publicly challenge the developers over their refusal to accept that they cannot build on his land. He explained that he is so frustrated about the injustices of the planning system he wants to appeal directly to the Government’s planning inspector at the examination.

Coping with Christmas
There are no garden waste collections between 26th December 2014 and 6th January 2015 (inclusive).
