Mid Sussex District Council are now acting as if it's a done deal and the fields south of Folders Lane are already doomed.

That's despite the fact that the democratic process is supposedly still in progress.

This just adds to weight of material thatĀ  SOFLAG have already uncovered including serious issues with their procedures and lack of transparency, and the flawed traffic study.

The next Full Council Meeting is provisionally scheduled for 13 May. It could happen behind closed doors or be postponed again.

But before then we will be publishing a set of posts that reveal what we believe to be damning evidence of impropriety and incompetence that make the whole Site Selection process unsound.

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 thenĀ  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.
