STOP TWO LORDS FROM BUILDING 10,000 HOUSES ON RURAL SUSSEX LAND

STOP TWO LORDS FROM BUILDING 10,000 HOUSES ON RURAL SUSSEX LAND

Stop two Lords who are directors of Mayfield Market Towns from building 10,000 houses on rural Sussex land turning a wildlife area into an urban, concrete sprawl.

Vast areas of countryside where many Red Listed and Schedule 1 Protected birds live, as well as other rare species of wildlife including badgers will be concreted over, ruining the countryside forever.

HS2 will be built to ferry people from the north to London. They can build their sprawl near already developed towns where houses are needed and businesses are needed up north. Or better still on their OWN doorsteps.

Why is this important?

TWO DIRECTORS ARE LORDS AND THIS, I BELIEVE, IS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST.
THERE JUST ISN'T THE INFRASTRUCTURE, LET ALONE THE WATER SUPPLY TO DEAL WITH THIS MASSIVE INVASION OF OVER 30,000 PEOPLE.

I believe that Lord Borwick and Lord Mathew Taylor (housing ‘advisor’ to the current Conservative government) are potentially breaching a ‘conflict of interest’.

Large donations were made to the Conservative party.

Peter Freeman is a director of Mayfields - founder Argent Plc.
Donations made to Conservative party from M FREEMAN (over £500,000) of Argent plc - Co founder of Argent - Peter Freeman who is now a director of Mayfields. Mr Freeman founded the property group Argent in 1981. He is Founder, Chairman, and Non-Executive Director of Argent Group Plc.

Reasons for signing

  • scrap hs2 aswell
  • We need the countryside for the animals and to keep our land beautiful. I know someone's bridleways that got turned into pavements which is discusting. Recently 2 horse racing tracks have been bought from and gonna be changed to housing. Horrific. I always visit the countryside and ride my horse round there and it's such a beautiful place. It pains me that we have so many empty houses they can sort out. Don't build on the green. That is no way to sort the housing market.
  • All new building should be stopped, to many houses are left boarded up, beautifull garden area's being built on etc. Take a look at what Lancaster planning has passed , shoe horning a building into a 90 year old area which will stick out like a sore thumb 16/01259/ful as well as creating more mahem to a congested area ! How did that get passed ? As people here can't believe it did ??? Coruption and greed maybe ?
