2014 AGM: Plumpton College

This year we returned to Plumpton College, the expanding and thriving home of East Sussex land-based education, for our AGM. The morning meeting included presentations with speakers on the theme of Sussex farming and the environment and included presentations by Sussex Wildlife Trust and Ben Taylor of Iford Farms (see below to download Powerpoint presentations).

Did you know that the most recent government figures (2009) show that there are enough brownfield to build up to 1.5m homes on? While we're facing unprecedented pressure on England's green field sites, with up to 30 local planning authorities intending to release green belt sites for development. CPRE figures show that that over 700,000 homes are planned on greenfield sites over the next 20 years!

We need you to help us show just how much brownfield is being wasted in the UK

 

Please help us with our new #wasteofspace campaign to show just how much brownfield land there is in the UK that could be turned into housing. Don't let the housing crisis become an excuse for losing our countryside.
