Horsham Society’s John Steele has said nothing to cause complaint (“Horsham Society is not negative, just watchful”, WSCT, August 29) - until now:
“The proposed North Horsham development is simply not good planning...Nobody should be fooled into believing this is the result of considered planning; it is simply a politically-motivated stitch-up designed to dump almost all the District’s new housing on Horsham, with no concern for the consequences”.
I wonder if Mr Steele would be saying the same if HDC had chosen the ‘West of Ifield’ Option instead - a monstrous plan which would have dumped 60 per cent of Horsham’s housing allocation on Crawley.
I doubt it somehow.
