Protecting Titmore

On 15 March there was a partial victory in the struggle to stop developers building on Titnore Woods in West Sussex, as the council rejected the proposal to build on farmland west of Durrington near Worthing.
For many, the committee’s unanimous decision came as a surprise following their approval of the Tesco application on part of the farmland last year and their approval of all the stages leading up to this point.
On 29 March, however, the council approved a new Core Strategy which still allocated the area for greenfield development, leaving Titnore open to development – but with fewer houses (700 not over 850). More info: www.protectourwoodland.co.uk
