Message from Andrew Blevins, Managing Director of Liberty
Naturally we are disappointed that the Planning Committee North did not feel able on its own to accept the recommendation of its own officers.
Our outline planning application has been interrogated and tested by the council and every relevant statutory authority consulted. It has proven to be fit for purpose and the council’s own expert consultants confirmed that it represents a good deal for the district.
Let’s hope the development goes to full council as soon as possible so as to not delay any longer the delivery of much needed housing. Importantly, the outline application provides the foundations for future detailed applications, which we are committed to bringing forward in consultation with the council and community to deliver the best possible development for the area.
North of Horsham is about positively supporting the future success and prosperity of the town and District for many years to come. It will deliver much-needed new homes and schools, as well as attracting high value businesses and jobs for the community.
We look forward to our application coming before the Full Council for a decision very soon.
