SOFLAG - 18 December 2020

SEASONS GREETINGS TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS

As 2020 comes to an end we hope all our supporters have got through these challenging times, and are looking forward to better things ahead in 2021.

2021 could bring a major decision on the fate of the fields with the conclusion of MSDC's current Site Selection process. There's not much progress to report following the latest round of consultation. According to their website, MSDC are still "reading and logging the responses received during the consultation". Thanks again to everyone who responded.  Hopefully local people have made their voice loud and clear.

SOFLAG has been fighting to protect the countryside to the south of Folders Lane for over 10 years.

The first proposal to cover it in a huge housing estate came back in 2009, and since then  hundreds of houses have been built or are under construction in the surrounding area leading to daily gridlock on Folders Lane & Keymer Road.

Now the fields and their abundant wildlife are seriously at risk once again, as MSDC has shortlisted them as site SA13 in the 2019 Site Allocations Document

We believe this shortlisting process was flawed, and will be fighting to get site SA13's inclusion reversed.
