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?
