We have recently received confirmation that Jones Homes have now formally submitted the application to build 75 homes in the fields behind Folders Lane.
Currently the application has not been validated while MSDC awaits further supporting documentation. However we understand this additional information is expected very shortly so we anticipate the application will be validated and made available for public viewing by the second week in January 2015, at which point the public will have just three weeks in which to submit their comments.
This is by far the most dangerous threat we have seen to the countryside between Burgess Hill and the villages to the south to date, an area which does not form part of the future development plans in either the Neighbourhood Plan or the District Plan.
We will therefore need your full support if we are to successfully prevent this application from being approved.
