A proposal to build 50 new homes in Billingshurst was strongly criticised by members of Billingshurst Parish Council at a meeting on Thursday (January 9).

Councillors voted unanimously to strongly object to the proposal, and voiced their concerns at the prospect of further building in the town.

Developer A2Dominion hopes to build 50 dwellings, with associated road works, parking, landscaping and open space provision.

The council also disclosed that nine letters of objection have been received from residents concerning the plans.

Fears include overdevelopment, increased flood risk and a lack of infrastructure to cope with the new homes.
