People advised to reserve a place at planning meeting


Members of the public who want to attend West Sussex County Council’s planning meeting are being advised that space is limited.

Priority will be given to people who have already made representations about items on the agenda.

The meeting, on Tuesday April 29, has been moved County Hall North in Horsham to due to ongoing repair work to the council chamber ceiling in Chichester. As a result, public space is limited to 100 people.

The committee is due to consider a number of items, including one for temporary oil and gas exploration at Lower Stumble Wood near Balcombe and for inert recycling at Burlands Farm near Crawley.

Anybody who wants to attend the meeting is asked to reserve their space by contacting Matthew Evans by email at or calling Matthew on 0330222538 by noon on Monday April 28.

The meeting will be webcast live at
