Ashington, and the need for more houses and job opportunities.

Ashington needs more houses for the young of the village and opportunities for them to work nearby.

I think that the ideal place for this expansion is Oast House Farm, off the Billingshurst Road, which has easy access off the A24 . It is in walking distance from the school and the shop yet isn't taking more cars onto the narrow roads of the village. It is already surrounded on three sides by buildings and is not in an area of natural  beauty. I believe that the Parish council has been very set on the sites by the church and not really opened their minds to the true values of the site at the top of the village.
