A shock decision by the planning inspector saw 160 Henfield homes approved on appeal this week.
The scheme on land off West End Lane was unanimously rejected by Horsham District Council in the summer last year.
This is the second major application allowed on appeal in the village in the last three years with 102 homes east of Manor Close similarly overturned on appeal in 2012 to the dismay of residents.
This also follows a new proposal for 72 homes for the same area.
