A planning condition required them to do this before half of the units were occupied, a point now well in the past.
We are well aware that many of these lorry movements will have been passing through Ardingly, Turners Hill and Crawley Down and that Balcombe, Cuckfield, Sharpthorne and West Hoathly have also been adversely affected.There is more at issue here than over-development in Lindfield.Mid Sussex District Council has published its draft District Plan for public consultation. Existing width limit signs and weight limit signs would be supplemented by new weight limit signs, almost all positioned along these routes.You may find the following points useful when formulating your comments: 1) Large developments already permitted at Newton Road and Gravelye Lane will swell our population by 1,000, an increase of nearly.In addition, a large part of the development would become a prominent and inappropriate urban backdrop to Lindfield Common.This will be our only opportunity to comment on the plan before the council submits it to the Government Planning Inspectorate for examination.Lindfield has already absorbed three major developments that are increasing our population by 20 and spilling 600 more cars onto our roads.Barratt has yet to discharge planning conditions attached to this earlier development.The precedents are not encouraging.Taylor Wimpeys application women search in Germany displays many of the same features that were unacceptable in the Wates scheme.Please note that objections must be based on objective planning considerations.2) Mid Sussex District Council needs to identify sites for new housing.It has involved a lot of work by a lot of people, including local residents, but has been well worth all the effort.Although this application is in all material ways the same as DM/16/1012, Mid Sussex District Council have made it clear that they cannot transfer over representations from one planning application into another and that objections and comments will have to be sent in all over.
Our thanks go to those who took the trouble to create and support the Lindfield Neighbourhood Plan and to make representations to the District Council against the proposal and who were not put off by the fear of failure.This is a very attractive development and, just as importantly, the energy efficient homes make living here more comfortable and affordable for residents.Yours sincerely, Gil Kennedy Chairman Lindfield Preservation Society In December 2013 the Preservation Society sent an open letter to Lindfield Parish Council about the Draft Neighbourhood Plan. The outcome was due entirely to your efforts.Any community in Mid Sussex could be undercut in the same way at any time.Most notably, they have still not transferred ownership of the adjoining Wilderness Field (thus protecting it from further development) to Mid Sussex District Council.Instead, the decision was introduced into a Planning Committee meeting on 7 December under a standing item for urgent business and members were invited to agree. .If the petition attracts 100,000 signatures, it will be considered for a debate in parliament (current total is about 20,856).The Society and the residents of Walstead with our Ward Councillors, have today succeeded in getting the application for 188-200 houses on the green-field site south of Scamps Hill refused permission with a decisive vote of 9 to 3 from the District Planning Committee.The original Wilmington Way residents were involved in the design and location of their new homes and several have now returned to the development.
