Local Parish Councils object to the proposed development  of 3,500 new dwellings at Buck Barn

The Parish Councils of West Grinstead, Cowfold and Nuthurst have taken the unusual step of writing jointly to officers and elected members of Horsham District Council to stress our communities’ opposition to the proposed development of 3,500 dwellings by Thakeham Homes becoming part of the District’s Strategic Plan. You can read a copy of the letter here.

Cowfold Parish Council has written a separate letter to Cabinet Members of the District Council and the Strategic Planning team to reinforce its objections to the proposal and emphasise the specific concerns of our village. A copy of the letter is here.
