Councillor Ray Dawe and his cabinet member for planning, Claire Vickers, are guilty of ‘flip-flopping’.
Before Christmas we needed 11,500 new houses in Horsham. This month the figure has been increased by a further 1,000.
For six months requests for a public meeting were refused, with written requests not even receiving a response. Now councillor Vickers has agreed to a public meeting.
We can but hope they can change their mind on a free vote so that at least the councillors have the opportunity to vote in accordance with the public’s wishes to reject the proposed development north of the A264 and save ‘Crawsham’ from becoming a reality.
