The comments in the plan on this are accurate. However this is an area of increasing pressure particularly at  primary school level, with population increases forcing people to move children out of their immediate catchment  area. This is only going to get worse.

Proposed Change Clear infrastructure support needs to be part of the plan, As someone who has lived in Broadbridge Heath until the major developments started, the promise made by developers of more school places seems to have got lost?. The same appears to be happening in Billingshurst now. This type of pledge needs to be made watertight if housing is to go ahead.
