The developer behind plans for 2,500 homes, a business park, and secondary school north of Horsham has unveiled its ‘green living’ vision for the area.

In this week’s County Times we interview the latest signatories of the Free Speech Charter, we have the latest on the trial of a Catholic priest from Pease Pottage, a Billingshurst man has spoken of a four-year ‘nightmare’ over repairs to his home, and shoppers have spoken of their disappointment at the planned closure of HMV.

Work to improve cycle access to Horsham Railway Station has been labelled a ‘waste of money’, we ask if could Horsham have its first female MP after May’s General Election, a Southwater woman speaks about her year training an assistance dog for charity Canine Partners, and a project to improve the Riverside Walk is bidding for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant.

Plans for 36 new homes in Billingshurst were debated by the council, a group formed to campaign against Gatwick Airport celebrated the achievements of its first year, a former Horsham GP has a new art exhibition in the town centre, and two Horsham residents celebrate their 100th birthdays.

In South Downs news a Storrington mum has launched a campaign for a ‘life-prolonging’ drug, a TV presenter visited Pulborough at the weekend, plans for a new market town are not included in the latest housing plans for Mid Sussex, and a spitfire pilot’s life has been celebrated at a Storrington care home.

In Horsham district sport we have match reports from Horsham FC, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham YMCA, and baseball, bowls, rugby, table tennis, and hockey news.

We also have readers’ letters and news, jobs, motors, politics, and business.
