Letter: Affordable housing

AFTER hearing about the proposed development in North Horsham (as reported in the County Times) myself and two of my neighbours decided to attend the SPAG (Strategic Planning Advisory Group) meeting at the council chambers on January 12.

After much discussion about the suggested nine sites we were amazed to hear the chairman state that ‘we need to build cheaper housing in the Horsham area as you’ve got to make the place less pleasant to live in to bring the price of houses down’.

I’m not sure that there are many of your readers who would agree!
