Letter: It’s not all about money

WHAT has been very surprising over recent weeks, since the announcement of the proposed huge development on the A264 north of Horsham, is the lack of concern over the ‘environment’ - the pollution and the waste produced by a population increase of 25 per cent in the surrounding area.

Has anyone not noticed the landfill mountain on the horizon of poor old Horsham. If not take a drive up Langhurst Wood Road and see for yourself.

All the that extra waste on top doesn’t bear thinking about. What about all the traffic - this area is gridlocked from 3pm to 7pm on the A24 and all the other roads around Horsham. How could the area cope?

It’s not all about money, you know - what about everyone’s quality of life?
