Affordable housing campaign
We actively campaign for or against planning applications based on the level of affordable housing assigned to a particular application. We believe that all residents within Horsham District have a right to live in a decent and affordable home, and we are the only Party in Horsham to consistently speak against the West of Horsham Developments on the basis that the 2000 homes are set to deliver massive profits for developers and very few affordable homes for local residents.
We campaigned in favour of developing the derelict former day centre Bryce Lodge at the top of New Street, which will shortly deliver more than 40 affordable homes.
The Council claims it is short of brown field sites for affordable housing but when they become available more often than not the planning application comes forward with no affordable housing.
