Our formal objection to planning application DC/14/0590: Land West of Worthing Road, Southwater, West Sussex. Residential development of up to 580 dwellings and 54 retirement living apartments, associated vehicular, cycle and pedestrian access, drainage and landscape works and provision of land for sports/recreation facilities (Outline) (Development affects the setting of a Listed Building).
At the end of March, Berkeley Homes submitted an outline planning application for 634 homes, exactly as they presented their proposal to us in the Beeson House exhibition at the start of the month. Now we have to make it quite clear not only that there are many flaws in the application but also that if Horsham District Council allows this to go through it will be doing so against the wishes of the vast majority of the population.
