The proposed Mayfield Market Towns development is in conflict with SP42 (Transport), SP28 (Rural character) and SP26 (Pollution).

SP42.  The scale of this development will almost certainly  lead to a major increase in traffic on local roads.  No evidence has been presented by Mayfields to back their claim that a large proportion of the residents would work from home.  Furthermore, no examples of precedents in other major developments in similar rural locations have been cited.

SP26.  The expected large increase in road traffic is in conflict with aims to reduce pollution.

SP 28 The rural character of the local countryside will be blighted by the proposed development.  Henfield and the surrounding villages and hamlets will lose their unique identities.
