I spoke at the big Save Our Deans rally in Ovingdean last night along with Simon Kirby MP, and Nancy Platts, Labour PPC and local councillors.
There was unity from all sides on supporting the campaign and preventing the development on Meadow Vale. But there were clear differences on why the problem had arisen in the first place !
Both myself and Nancy saw the Government’s National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) giving a green (sic!) light to developments like this and making it harder for local councils to oppose them, while Simon implied the danger was the local (Green-led) council.
No doubt these issues will play out over the coming months! Meanwhile, keep supporting the Save Our Deans Campaign ! https://www.facebook.com/saveourdeans
