In terms of smaller scale development proposals, Rusper Parish Council strongly feels that no new sites should be allocated that are not already identified with the existing HDPF or Neighbourhood Plans or it is on a brown field site.
Any further housing requirement should be met by increasing the density of proposed developments and any further green field development should be avoided at all costs. This would be in line with government policy on the type of housing required and to align with the objectives of the climate emergency declaration.
