Dear Ms Goldsmith

 

MUGGERIDGE FIELD, ATHELSTAN WAY, HORSHAM

 

As you will know your Council’s planning appeal for the development of Muggeridge Field was recently turned down by the Planning Inspector.

 

This is the second appeal to have been refused and we sincerely hope that WSCC will now accept that development of this sensitive site which has long been used by local people for informal recreation would be inappropriate.

 

As the Council has already declared that the land is no longer required for education purposes there seems to be no reason why it should not be reassigned for recreational use.

 

We suggest that the site should be nominated as a Queen Elizabeth II Field to mark the Diamond Jubilee.  This would not only protect the site in perpetuity but would provide an excellent opportunity for the Council to participate in this worthwhile initiative.

 

I look forward to hearing from you. 

 

Copies go to Councillors Watson, Dennis, Sheldon, Millson, Hellawell and Catchpole.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

John Steele

Secretary, Planning Sub Committee
