The Consultation and Site Allocations will be discussed at the next Scrutiny Committee Meeting on WEDNESDAY 22nd JANUARY. The meeting is at 7pm at the Council Chamber in Haywards Heath. Will MSDC take into account over 800 objections to the fields south of Folders Lane being destroyed? It's open to the public...
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.
