We're 'not a dustbin for housing needs'

Written by CPRE Sussex

Mid Sussex Times, 8 June 2017

CPRE Sussex and other campaigners react to the planning inspector's decision to increase the housing target in the Mid Sussex District Local Plan from 800 to 1,026 homes a year.

This the formal response of the Campaign to Protect Rural England Sussex Branch (CPRE Sussex) to the Arun District Council (ADC) public consultation on the Modifications to the Arun Local Plan 2017 (‘the Local Plan.’)

CPRE Sussex works to promote the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of the Sussex countryside by encouraging the sustainable use of land and other natural resources in town and country. We encourage appropriate and sustainable land use, farming, woodland and biodiversity policies and practice to improve the well-being of rural communities. It is our position that local planning authorities should seek to ensure that the negative impacts of development on the countryside, both direct and indirect, are kept to a minimum and that development is sustainable in accordance with national planning policy.
