      All very commendable, worthwhile and interesting but I suspect the major blocker can be summed up in this part of the article :

      “The owner of the option on the site has said that for the right price, and with a plan that he approves, he will sell the land.”


      The devil whispered in my ear : "You're not strong enough to withstand the storm."

      On, you mean BEEDING cement works!?

      Never in my 45 years have I heard it referred to as Shoreham (yes I know that's what the article calls it, and what it is probably really named).

      Plans look great, but far fetched. Never going to happen.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      The Regency Society will complain it doesn't suit Brighton. Never going to happen.

      I think a football stadium would be perfect for this site.

      A river would flow through the development, giving the eco-village a Venice-like feel. Only zero-carbon buses would run through the site, with cars left on the outskirts at a park and ride facility.
      There would be office space, restaurants and shops, a visitor’s centre for the national park, an outdoor activities centre, and even a zipwire to travel from one end of the chalk pit to the other.
      There are plans for a primary school, health centre and an auditorium.


      None of which will happen in favour of even more homes, loosely termed 'affordable'.


      The trip from Chichester to Bognor has become even more depressing than usual, with new 'towns' built above Bersted and Felpham.
      This is continuing through Lyminster then onto Angmering (above Worthing RFC), all the homes, not a lot of infrastructure.

      I don't imagine the Climping road will remain farmland for much longer.


      Still I guess we should be grateful for one new road, everything else should cope just fine.

      Sorry Hans, having lived in Steyning and having had to pass that monstrosity every day for years, it was always known as Shoreham cement works - may have been a local thing though. I suppose it's the same as people from Sussex always refer to the Palace pier, not Brighton.

      The row of terraced houses adjacent to the 'monstrosity'. I always remember a proud householder cutting his tiny, immaculate front lawn with a pair of scissors!
