SUPPORT THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN AND HELP PROTECT HASSOCKS FROM OVER-DEVELOPMENT

FOFRA is urging all Hassocks residents to back the emerging Neigbourhood Plan.
 
As with any democratic process, it cannot please everybody. However, for over a year we have all had an equal chance to contribute. Without it, developers will be free to target anywhere in the parish to build housing estates. 
 
The Hassocks Neighbourhood Plan produced by the Parish Council allocates Friars Oak Fields (north of Shepherds Walk) for ‘Local Green Space’ rather than housing - and this is precisely what we set out to achieve.
 
Let's not lose this chance to protect the fields. Rydon Homes want to build a 405-bedroom estate that will make our flooding, traffic and air pollution problems worse. 
 
Please email your support for the plan as a whole to hassocksnp@hassockspc.net by 16 February. For more details of the plan see http://hassockspc.net/.
