OCTOBER 20 2021 – TONIGHT [WEDNESDAY] – CRAWLEY BOROUGH COUNCIL – FULL COUNCIL MEETING [7.30] – CHARIS CENTRE, WEST GREEN – PUBLIC QUESTION TIME – WEST OF IFIELD

QUESTION – FROM RICHARD SYMONDS OF THE IFIELD SOCIETY

“Is the ‘Water Neutrality’ Directive from Natural England a ‘show-stopper’ when it comes to large developments – such as the West of Ifield masterplan within our ancient Parish?”

 

SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTION [WITHDRAWN]

“Will City status help prevent the West of Ifield becoming a building site for the next 30 years – or will achieving such a status provide an opportunity to make the whole area a Local Nature Reserve?”

 

NEW SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTION

“Last Monday, Horsham District Council’s Deputy Leader [and Councillor representing Colgate and Rusper within the ancient Parish of Ifield] wrote on a Facebook site regarding Homes England’s scheme of 10,000 houses West of Ifield:

‘Why are you not writing to homes England to object to the scheme? HDC legally have to review what is put in front of them but the developer in this case homes England could withdraw the plans…I would encourage everybody to write to homes England as well’

“Will Crawley Borough Council support a letter-writing campaign urging Homes England to withdraw their scheme of 10,000 houses West of Ifield?”
