Goes mostly against council's own criteria

This is a green field site.  It may grow to merge Pulborough and Billingshurst. There are no strict guarantees that the developer will stick to 35% affordable housing. The level should be 50% affordable housing as a minimum. The council state that the price of housing is already too high. What is needed is smaller sites that are built carbon free affordable housing for young people and older generations needing to move into support and care homes/apartments. Sticking in a few electrical points does not make for environmental sustainability.

Proposed Change
