Our comments on the draft Joint Minerals Plan

Written by CPRE Sussex

CPRE Sussex has submitted comments on the West Sussex County Council and South Downs National Park draft Joint Minerals Plan.

The result of the poll published in the Eastbourne Review asking local residents whether they would prefer the Council to sell the Freehold of the Downland Farms or make cuts to frontline services has resulted in the decision not to sell off the Downland Estate.
So as from now, the potential sale of the Farms is off the table.

In an article published on 8 Feb 2017 the West Sussex Country Times writes: "Campaigners have warned that the government's white paper to 'fix the housing market' could jeopardise Sussex's unprotected countryside.

South East England Councils (SEEC)’s report, Unlock the housing blockers, says that the body’s members are concerned about stalled or slow development on sites with planning permission, which is often due to widespread development industry business practices to balance supply and demand of housing to maximise profits.
