Read the full text of the CPRE Sussex response to the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government: ‘Technical consultation on updates to national planning policy and guidance’

CPRE Sussex is urging people to take action after the government revealed that it plans to switch its most recent housing figures with outdated data from 2014 in a move which will force more houses onto the Sussex countryside.

CPRE Sussex is warning that the Government’s new planning rules (NPPF) published yesterday on July 24, will make it more difficult than ever to protect some of Sussex's most beautiful countryside.

CPRE Sussex Chair, David Johnson and Trustee and Chair of the Protect Sussex Group, Dr Roger Smith wrote to all Sussex MPs with concerns about the new NPPF. Their Letter (see below) outlined why the new NPPF would not lead to the right outcomes for local people and the environment.

West Sussex County Council planning committee at County Hall in Chichester today (19th June) decided in an 8 to 4 vote to dismiss the planning application by haulage firm, Britaniacrest, for a “Recycling, Recovery and Renewable” thermal treatment facility in Horsham.

The government is reviewing an important piece of policy that could change the shape of the English countryside for ever. It is rewriting the National Planning Policy Framework – the rules that determine what kind of houses are built, where they go, and whether it is communities or developers who are at the heart of those decisions.

Sir,

Environment Plan doesn’t correlate with planning policy reality
