This is it, the time for your voice to count!

Please attend the vital consultation taking place this weekend.

*Neighbourhood Plan Consultation*
Friday 30 January 7.15pm for 7.30pm - 9.30pm
or
Saturday 31 January 10.15am for 10.30am - 12.30pm
At: Downlands Community School, Dale Avenue, Hassocks BN6 8LP
Both meetings will commence with a short presentation on the key aspects of producing a Neighbourhood Plan. You will have the opportunity to share your views on possible development in the village and to indicate where you consider any future development should take place in Hassocks.
Every voice and opinion counts, so go as a family and please make sure your neighbours know about this event and how vitally important it is that we all attend this consultation. The more objections against development of the Friars Oak Fields means the more chance we have of saving our wonderful fields for all of the community to enjoy.

Oaks View Hassocks announced

Rydon Homes, a property development company, held a public exhibition in Hassocks on 16th & 17th January 2015, to announce their intention to turn the whole of Friars Oak Fields into a housing development named Oaks View Hassocks. If this goes ahead it would result in Friars Oak Fields being lost in their entirety forever.
This is a disasterous turn of events for the residents of Hassocks. How on earth can a property developer be permitted to destroy such an area of natural beauty, and tear away this unique and rare amenity from our community?
