The Sunday Telegraph (11 October 2015) did an interesting piece ‘The disturbing new dawn for Lyme disease’.

‘Soaring numbers of people are suffering from the bacterial infection Lyme Disease, new figures reveal’.

The piece goes on to describe the symptoms and consequences of this tick-borne health risk – which are most concerning. Experts believe that the increasing occurrence of Lyme disease is due to a number of factors and top of the list, the ‘increasing numbers of housing developments in rural areas’.

I just wonder whether Horsham District Council took this environmental risk factor into account when preparing their Horsham District Planning Framework?
