Campaigners plan to picket Billingshurst exhibition

CAMPAIGNERS against housing development in Billingshurst have sent out a clear message to developers who plan to hold an exhibition next month.

There has even been a call for people to boycott and picket the controversial event.

Bellway Homes, Devine Homes and Reside Developments are the consortium of developers who say they own and control the land which is currently under consultation for development by Horsham District Council (HDC).

The consortium says it plans to hold a public exhibition at the village hall on January 14 and 15 to understand residents’ views on the eastern expansion of Billingshurst.
