The proposed demolition of a Storrington doctors’ surgery continues to cause controversy, with another organisation expressing its wishes to preserve the Glebe Green Space.

An application to demolish Glebe Surgery in Monastery Lane in Storrington to make way for a new surgery, pharmacy, and car parking spaces, as well as 24 homes is currently under consideration.

The plans also include adapted access to Monastery Lane and the creation of new public green open space.

Now the Wiggonholt Association has joined the fight, calling for Glebe Field to be saved.

A spokesperson for the association said: “The Glebe Field, the only major amenity open space within Storrington, will be sacrificed, contrary to the intention of the Storrington Neighbourhood Plan which has come down strongly on the side of its conservation.

“We feel that the medical problem can be resolved without resorting to an unsustainable planning sacrifice.”

The association describes itself as an ‘influential champion of the West Sussex countryside’.
