July 2010

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) has called for environmental groups and the public to join it in fighting renewed plans for houses at Polegate, East Sussex which it calls "a brazen affront to the new National Park".

Plans for 520 houses have already been rejected by Wealden District Council, but Pelham Homes is now trying to get the decision overturned at a major public Inquiry later this year.

Speaking at the Gatwick Airport Consultative Committee (GATCOM) meeting on 28 January 2010, Sir David Rowlands, former Permanent Secretary at the Department for Transport and current Chairman of the Board of Gatwick Airport Ltd ruled out a second runway at Gatwick for the foreseeable future.

CPRE Sussex has welcomed the news that Ford in Sussex has been struck off the list of Ecotowns in a statement made by the Housing Minister, John Healey.

This announcement follows extensive consultation by the Department of Communities and Local Government ending on 30 April 2009.
