Horton Landfill Site, Small Dole

CPRE Horsham District Group have objected to a planning application to increase the capacity of this site by 500,000tonnes by raising its height by 4 metres and extending its tipping period from 1st April 2008 to October 2010. The proposed increase in height amounts to landraising which is excluded from West Sussex waste policies. The proposal will lead to an unacceptable impact on nearby communities. The original planning permission stipulated that site restoration would follow completion and the finished ground surface levels were to merge into the surrounding area.Thus creating the appearance of a natural extension of the local landscape. The proposed increase in height does not comply with this objective and would create an alien landscape feature.

We await with interest the Inspectors' Report following the South East Plan Examination in Public (EiP) Hearings. We have highlighted our concerns in our submissions to the questions posed by the panel of experts who lead the EiP. It is anticipated the EiP will lead to final approval of the SE Plan in early 2008.
