Share your views: Council says NO to providing for 1,715 homes every year for the next 10 years

The Government announced last week that it was consulting on proposals to reform the planning system in England. Unless the proposals are changed it would oblige Horsham District Council to almost double the number of homes from the current Government minimum target of 920 homes to 1,715 homes a year.  The Government has said that there should be a public consultation on these new proposals and so we are seeking the views of our residents so that they can be incorporated into our response to the Government. The Council's poll closes at 5pm on Friday 4 September.
