I object to this development due to the increase of traffic in the area

Dear Sir, Madamme,

I am a resident in the South Downs National Park area of Clayton. If this development goes ahead there will be a huge influx of cars in the area, more than these small country lanes could ever hope to support. I assume the future residents of this development will also be expecting to use Hassocks train station to travel to London and Brighton. This is an issue as the London bound trains are already at capacity during rush so how can Southern Rail & Thameslink expect to carry this extra demand. The increase in volume for commuters travelling to Hassocks station in the morning will only add to polution at Stone Pounds Cross and where do these cars expect to park as Hassocks only has a limited amount of car parking spaces which are already full by 0800. 

This application has already been rejected by the local Parish, District Council and local MPs along with all the residents in this area. It was previously rejected by a Planning Inspector as unsustainable. These decisions should be respected and upheld. 

The impact to the enviroment will be unprecidented and should in no way should this project go ahead.

Yours sincerely,


Proposed Change Stop this application immediatly.
