Handcross

Notice Board: I hope you took my advice to look at the notice board outside the Spar Shop before going up to the Pavilion for the Neighbourhood Planning meeting on Tuesday! I heard early last week that it has been moved to Tuesday, 7 February but again, I would strongly recommend that you check the notice board before going out at night to attend. The problem I think the committee is experiencing at the moment is that they are waiting on information from third parties (consultants and/or Mid Sussex District Council) to move on and until they get this information, there is little to discuss at a meeting. I will keep you posted!
