Town councillors in Midhurst are losing patience. Colin Hughes said “I wouldn’t mind if there was work being done, but there is no indication of any work whatsoever”. Gordon McAra said he was very concerned about the obtrusive fencing around the SDNPA’s Capron House property with apparently little happening behind it. Earlier this month the Midhurst and Petworth Observer revealed that the cost of the project had soared from £1.5m to almost £3m and was continuing to spiral despite little work having yet been carried out. A spokesman for the SDNPA said “we are looking at how we can improve the hoarding”.
