Ifield West not in latest housing report

The West of Ifield does not have a mention in a leaked report about future housing in the Horsham district. The report, shown to the Observer’s sister paper The West Sussex County Times, details the areas which are likely to form Horsham District Council’s Local Plan of housing for the next 20 years.

Kilnwood Vale, the 3,500 home development being built to the west of Bewbush, lies in the Horsham district and there are fears HDC will earmark more of the boundary land for housing. But this report says the only major development outlined is 2,500 homes bordering the north of Horsham and other housing is likely to be spread among the villages and towns south of the town.

HDC will present its report at a full council meeting on July 25.
