Letter: Could this be an emergency back-up plan?

I can’t help feeling the massive proposed development North-East of Horsham near Crawley (“Countryside under threat...from proposals for 4,500 new homes”, WSG Front Page and page 3, January 11) is the emergency back-up plan IF the monstrous development West of Crawley - Ifield Brook Meadows & Golf Club - are shelved.

If there is substance to this “feeling”, I predict a pull-out - very soon - by private developers planning to build within this ancient parish.
