“We will give people the resources necessary to enhance the pride they feel in the place they live” – Michael Gove

 

“One of those resources is good Local Government – of, by and for the people” ~ Richard W. Symonds

 

The Ancient Parish of Ifield [in red]

“It is critical for our community, having a sense of place and pride where we live, to regain and re-establish the vision and identity of our ancient Parish of Ifield, with its ecclesiastical boundary [which ‘straddles’ the Horsham District Council and Crawley Borough Council administrative boundaries]. This parish is a uniquely special, ‘hidden gem’ of natural beauty in Sussex – rich in history, heritage, character, wildlife diversity and ancient woodland. Homes England appear intent in making our ancient parish essentially a ‘building site’ for the next 30 years. We in this community cannot – and will not – let this happen, and call upon Mr Gove to drop this ‘masterplan of madness‘ by his government agency”
