Mid Sussex District Council are currently digesting the 6,750 comments they received in response to the consultation of the East Grinstead Loca Area Action Plan. The current draft plan is to be revised and will be re-issued in the autumn.


After two Public Inquiries and a High Court Appeal, WSCC rejected an application by The Trail Riders Fellowship for the status of a section of the South Downs Way (Byeway 952) between Cocking, Heyshott and Graffham to be changed from a Restricted Byeway to a BOAT (Byeway Open to All Traffic).

We are delighted with the Inspector's decision to rule against Cory environmental's proposal to use Freshfield Lane Brickworks as a landfill site. CPRE Sussex has objected to the proposal throughout its history, which dates back to 2003, as it lies within the High Weald AONB. The inevitable increase in vehicular movements (in particular heavy lorries) would intrude into this protected rural area. Residents and members of the Freshfield Action Group mounted an effective local campaign which we have been pleased to support. Naturally, they are delighted with the decision.
