Summary
Affordable housing targets are too high.
Comment

The proportions proposed are way out of line with older areas of Horsham and also would not be reserved for existing residents. It would become an overspill for South London, Croydon and Crawley which would destroy the character of Horsham (and some might argue this is already happening).

Proposed Change Reduce overall target for rented "affordable", increase number of 4 bed for sale. Add a 5 bed target (for sale).

Allocate only to existing (long term) residents.
