LETTER: Plans have been rushed through

I am writing to give rise to my concerns over the proposed North Horsham development on greenfields near the A264. I feel that it has been rushed through without proper thought and consultation by Horsham District Council.

My key concerns are:

The lack of consultation. Is August a good time to propose this and with such a short window to review?

There also appears to be a lot of missing information re traffic flow assessment, impact assessments on schools and the like.

This site is really not suitable when there are already a number of potential existing sites especially around Southwater.

Finally general consideration as to the large amount of development already under way – Billingshurst, Broadbridge Heath and so on and has there been any real thought given to the lack of capacity at schools, hospitals, roads and space/sporting facilities?

My son attends Warnham and the class sizes are already very high with us getting Horsham overflow as their schools are at capacity.
