VIDEO - Lindfield housing meeting raises numbers fears

Lindfield Preservation Society has highlighted fears that a planning application for 230 new homes in the village could be only the start of up to twice as many properties in the future.

Society vice chairman John Jess told the public meeting at the King Edward Hall that the Wates Developments website revealed the potential scope of a 52 acre site off Gravelye Lane, Lindfield as up to 500 homes.
