More than 400 people packed out a public meeting to protest against plans for a 10,000 home new market town in West Sussex. On Friday night (October 18) many had to be turned away from Hassocks’ Adastra Hall, with long queues of traffic attempting to enter the village. .. So many villagers turned up for the meeting that there were queues outside, and some people had to go home.
And, from the report in yesterday’s paper edition of the WSCT:
Nick Herbert [said] “This is a serious threat. Mayfield is behaving appallingly in trying to undermine Mid Sussex’s District Plan, which they effectively hope to get over-turned. They’re not getting their way through the democratic process, so they’re trying to subvert it. I think that is absolutely contemptible.” [page 4]
