Villagers who have waged a years-long battle to save a children’s play meadow from development vowed this week: We won’t give up.

Flis Irving, who has spearheaded the villagers’ battle said: “I will continue to fight this to the bitter end. I think it is morally wrong, so wrong. The council should not be developing land with one enormous house at the expense of the community.”

Also in today’s paper councillors have issued their support for the ‘first phase’ of the Northern Arc development after developers agreed to amend their application. Burgess Hill Town Council discussed plans for 130 new homes on land south of Freeks Farm, in Freeks Lane, at a meeting on Monday, October 10.
