THIS FRIDAY [JUNE 19 2020] IN CRAWLEY – A SHORT PROTEST AT THE HOMES ENGLAND OFFICE WITHIN CRAWLEY TOWN HALL – BETWEEN MIDDAY AND 12.30PM

 

A short protest – ‘Beyond Bullying’ – will take place this Friday [June 19 2020] at the Homes England office within Crawley Town Hall – between Midday and 12.30pm.

Why? 

To protest at Homes England’s £3bn masterplan for 10,000 houses West of Crawley.

With the Government’s rejection – again – of the urgent appeal by Horsham District Council [HDC] to reduce housing targets, there is very deep concern this will inevitably lead to a breach of the democratic planning process when HDC finally meet to decide which sites to allocate for development. In other words, the only way to meet these insanely-high targets imposed by this developer-led Government is to ‘green-light’ Homes England’s £3bn masterplan.

There is also deep, continuing concern that the former Homes England Chairman Sir Edward Lister has become the Government’s Chief Strategic Adviser.

It is hoped this short protest will help spark a Public Inquiry or a Judicial Review
