Homes England have submitted an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) scoping opinion request together with associated documentation to Horsham District Council. Here is a link to the documentation: HE EIA
There is a lot of documentation available – some items are more detailed than others, but more specific information related to the Homes England proposals are starting to emerge.
This is the formal CBC response – CBC response
Key items that I have noted include:
- There is an alignment shown for the northern part of the Western link road
- There is a potential connection to Rusper Road that would cross Ifield Meadows and Ifield Brook and would be for foot / cycle and pedestrian use only
- 12% / 25 hectares of the proposed site area is within Crawley Borough
- Proposals do not include consultation with Crawley councillors or residents groups
And I didn’t notice a lot of publicity along with this submission?! Many thanks to certain Ifield residents who drew our attention to these materials.
