As you may know, in February KSG submitted the petition to Horsham District Council. And we sent a lengthy report to Council officers and elected members giving all the reasons why they should refuse the planning application by Berkeley Homes to build ‘West of Southwater’. However, HDC went ahead anyway and granted permission.

Since then, three important things have happened:

  • New national household and population projections have been published
  • A consultant’s report on traffic numbers has been shown to be highly questionable
  • HDC has put out its revised Planning Framework for public consultation (see here)

Now in order to update Southwater residents, not only on what we said to Council in February but also on what the traffic report and population projections mean, we have produced a full report on the current situation, which you can read by clicking on this link: KSG Report 30.03.15

Naturally, KSG will be responding to the revision to the Horsham District Planning Framework before the deadline of 5th May. However, we encourage you to comment also as individuals. All the details regarding doing so can be found on HDC’s website here.
