Contractors have been doing environmental work and further exploratory assessments on the site near the A24 at Highwood Mill from Monday to carry out the environmental improvements, such as tree planting and pond building, as well as additional site investigation tests.

The works are expected to last for five days.

In September 2020 the cabinet at West Sussex County Council gave their unanimous support to the plans.
