We learned this afternoon that the Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, has approved the council’s decision on New Monks Farm and will not call in the development!
So all those who told us it will just be rubber stamped whether by the council or central government were right. It’s no wonder people get cynical.
The committee are meeting on Friday to decide where we go next.
We can’t begin to describe our disappointment that the opinions of local people should be so thoroughly irrelevant, that the effects of increased traffic and pollution on people’s health and climate change should be considered so insignificant.
We hope next week’s local paper will be filled with letters of horror from AREA supporters at what this decision will mean to Adur residents.
Thank you again for your support and encouragement.
