Chichester College should not be allowed to create an industrial site on fields beside the Roman Road along the A29.

The college has little time for the countryside.

They allowed the old playing fields and part of the farm to be used as a tip site for hundreds of lorry loads of builders rubbish over a three year plus period.

During that time lorries entered the site and machines worked seven days a week. The height of some of the fields has been raised by as much as ten metres.

The student accommodation built some years ago at a huge cost is now let as a B&B apart from a few rooms used for farm duty students. College money wasted?

The college now claims to be short of money so now they want to create an industrial park claiming it will assist courses at the college.

Sales of TVs to hotels and hospitals, manufacture of industrial pollution filters, plant hire sales and hire, concrete products, and a swimming pool contractor?

I think not. Where will the students fit into those industries and where will they come from?
