ANOTHER GREEN SPACE DEVELOPMENT PROPOSED

 

A planning application has been submitted for 31 houses on SHARNFOLD FARM just north of Stone Cross. However this would seem to be the potential "thin end of the wedge" as it seems clear that the owners would like to build 400+ properties on this agricultural space.

There is a Facebook group - Stop Sharnfold Development - you can find them HERE
